Infirmed Man in Bed

Infirmed Man in Bed | Photograph | Wisconsin Historical Society
A man lays in bed, covered to his chin in bedding and propped up by pillows. Laying next to the man on the bed is a large bible and a rosary. The room is richly decorated with a large wooden headboard and wallpaper. Beside the man is a table with tablecloth on which sits a religious shrine. There is also a glass candle holder in the shape of a cross, what appears to be an ink well and pen, and another jar. Above the table are two religious paintings and a lamp with a card attached to the side of the glass shade. This man may have been an employee at International Harvester's Osborne Works in Auburn, New York.
