Operating Room Window

Description

In our reconstructed operating room from the 1940s we have a piece from the original facility's OR.  The window to the rear of the exhibit comes from what was Tri-State Hospital. 

It was used to provide not only light, but ventilation during Shreveport hot and humid summers.  The window frame and glass remains one of the few artifacts of the Tri-State period and likely witnessed Dr. Willis, Sr. and Jr. performing operations.
