Aside from hundreds of photographs of exteriors of hospitals, The Hospitals and Wards Collection offers countless interior views showing the inner workings of nineteenth and twentieth century hospitals. Emergency rooms, dispensaries, and wards are depicted, while photographs of ambulances, equipment, and staff give a full picture of early hospital care. Rare albums from the 1890s include Bellevue Hospital, Boston City Hospital, Chicago’s Cook County Hospital, Philadelphia General Hospital, Johns Hopkins Hospital and more.
