Gore's hospital hot-air bath

W R Gore's hospital hot-air bath
< Dublin medical press (23 May 1860)

W R Gore's hospital hot-air bath. Designed by a surgeon at the City of Limerick Hospital, the bath could be made out of wood for about 2.0.0.

Judging by the size of the two-part hole for the patient's neck at the top of the bath, this drawing is not to scale!
