Edwardian Era Health, Medicine Cartoons from Punch magazine by Arthur Rackham

The Doctor's Visit. Sir Frederick Treves says that the popular notion of disease as something malignant is entirely wrong. Lecturing at Edinburgh he declared that its phenomena were beneficent in purpose, and that it is to be counted not among the ills that flesh is heir to, but rather among the good gifts. — Henceforth no up-to-date physician will go the rounds of his patients unaccompanied by a selection of benevolent microbes, from among which there should be no difficulty in prescribing one or two that would prove cheerful and congenial companions to any sufferer.
