Image of the Week: Preparing for the operating room

scope_historic_handwashing.jpg

Earlier this week, I wrote about the importance of proper hand hygiene. And now I present you with an image from the Stanford Medical History Center Flickr photo stream of "unidentified persons preparing for the operating room." What I do know is that the subject in the foreground is washing his hands. Everything else, however, is a mystery. If you know anything about this photo, your comments are most welcome.
