A Photographic Album

This bustling corridor houses a collection of images from the MGH Archives and Special Collections, depicting daily life at the hospital from the 1840s to the 1940s. Some of the photos – in particular the daguerreotypes, which were printed on glass negatives – had not been seen for more than 100 years when they were discovered in a vault in the now demolished Moseley Building.
