Weird and Wonderful- Vintage medical text book

Hello everyone,

I thought it would be fun to post some more vintage things on my blog so today I found you all something rather weird and wonderful! This is a page from a vintage medical textbook which shows how to lift the sick and injured. I thought it was rather cool so thought I would share it with you all :). The book is approximately 1920- 30s.  


Did it make anyone else smile that they call piggie backs a pick-a-back?! 

Hope you enjoyed this post. I am trying to post more regularly on my blog :)
