A sketch of the photograph, exaggerating the proportions of limb length and wound, illustrates Maclaren's paper in the Lancet. He referred to this case and showed the photograph, or one pertaining, during his inaugural address as president of the North Border Counties Branch, British Medical Association, delivered July 25th, 1879, an association which he helped found (1880 Lancet, vol. 1, p. 200: »»). The six year-old boy is posed next to a table on which is placed the 3-1/2 inch section of his humerus, wire mounted inside an open frame. The bone is slightly bowed and notched by a year-old fracture.
