Obstetrics Examination Table

Description

This obstetric and gynecological examination table dates from the early 1920s and may have been used by the doctors who saw patients at the Tri-State Hospital or the Willis-Knighton Clinic.  It's also possible Dr. J. Dudley Talbot, for whom the museum is named, used this or one similar during his long career at Willis-Knighton.  Lying across the table is the long white coat that was the "uniform” for doctors who much of the 20th Century.  It is monogrammed with Dr. Talbot’s name.
