I totally fell right in to this Internet sink hole early today.
I have been clicking through the photos on the Dorchester Atheneum web site since like 5:30 this evening.
I have a headache.... *sigh* *click*click*
I mean who knew there had been a home for consumptives back in the day. Are there homes for consumptives any more? What is consumption anyway? Is it really just tuberculosis?
Ailments were much better named back in Olden Days. Does anyone get diagnosed with cerebrasthenia any more? What about diphtheria? How about dropsy?
Anyway, yeah, a Home for Consumptives in good old Dorchester.
Who'da thunk it!
