The Victorian Surgeons Casebook

View a selection of reproductions of original Victorian photographs taken of patients of the Bristol Royal Infirmary.

They were taken for inclusion in a Victorian Surgeons Casebook.

Many of the images are taken in a Victorian photographic studio and show a different attitude to patients rights.

These images are reproduced and displayed with kind permission of the BRI Medical Illustrations Department.

These images are of a sensitive and challenging nature showing images of disease, nudity and disability.
