A contemporary of Fournier, Doctor Thomas Stretch Dowse presents an excellent accounting of the neurosyphilis cases he treated at the Central London Sick Asylum.
One of the woodburytypes is a specimen of a diseased rectum. The two remaining photos are mounted on the same page and show a seated man at rest and a few minutes later while agitated. The inscription reads:
These photographs were executed within a few minutes of each other; and Fig. 2 shows the same patient seen in fig 1, but under excitement so that the palsy of the right seventh and left third nerves are well developed.
