Description
Large format photograph of an antique glass-plate specimen of brain tissue (unknown brain, slide #79), first created approximately 80 years ago at St Elizabeth's hospital in Washington DC, USA.

The glass plates were believed to have been made in the laboratory of Dr Walter Freeman, who brought lobotomy to the US and popularised its use. This image is one of over 100 images which were captured as part of a dcoumentary to examine the hospital's history and rebirth into 21st century mental healthcare.
