Joseph Lister, English surgeon, on his ward round in Glasgow Royal Infirmary, c1867 (1927). A pioneer of antiseptic surgery, Lister (1827-1912) was able to announce in 1867 that his wards had been clear of sepsis for 9 months. On the left an assistant holds Lister's steam spray which produced a spray of carbolic acid (phenol) laden steam. The patient is handing Lister her broken doll and he sewed its leg back on for her.
