Context

This image was created during world war 1.
The war caused many casulties so doctors had to come up
with new ways to help people and treat the sick
and wounded.

Message

The image is a diagram of a 'Thomas' type splint.
It shows a person attaching a splint, a person wearing a splint
and several images of a leg with a split attached from the top.

Purpose

The diagram was created to show people and doctors how
to apply the splint. This is because the splint was a
new invention at the time and people had never seen it before.
It was also made to show what a splint was and to show it
to more people so that everyone would know about it.
Many peoples lives were saved by the splint and without
images like these they would have died.
