The name of the photographer, Baldwin Coolidge, is engraved in tiny italic pearl font next to plate 8.

All 8 images are of one child, a girl four years old when she was entrusted to the ministrations of Dr. Brown in April 1882. Plates 1 and 2 are two views of the child's lordosis and in plates 3 and 4 she is pinioned in the orthopedic bed Dr. Brown devised for her treatment. Plates 6 to 8 were taken of the child only three months later and show the deformity almost completely healed.
