Those people who believe that modern health care is substandard may have a look at our collection. Some images are real eye-openers. A mere hundred years ago TB and typhoid fever were quite common. Hospitals in those days looked like the worst prisons. No ambulances but stretchers on wheels. There is however a nice article about the first airborne ambulance. Not quite what it is today, but it was a start.
These and thousands of other images can be found in the collection.
