Finding Aid for Poona Plague Pictures, 1897-1908, undated

Title: Poona Plague Pictures,
Dates: 1897-1908, undated
Number: 96.R.95
Extent: 1.0 album (147 photographs and 4 loose items)
Abstract: The album, most likely compiled by Dr. C.H.B. Adams-Wylie, the plague medical officer at the General Plague Hospital in Poona (Pune), India, from 1897-1898, records the work of that hospital in great detail. The photographs portray the daily work of the hospital and include portraits of hospital staff, views of the hospital wards and grounds, and detailed close-up studies of plague patients. Photographs taken outside the hospital compound document the measures instituted by Pune's Special Plague Committee and enforced by the British and native soldiers, such as forced house inspections and the holding of residents within observation and segregation camps.
