Advances in medicine and the progress of the medical profession are clearly evident in decades of photographs of laboratories and doctors’ offices. Nineteenth century offices where the patient waiting room and exam room were one and the same illustrate how privacy was of little concern to patients desperate for medical attention. Photographs range from simple nineteenth century laboratories to complex sterile twentieth century medical environments.
