A simple device for removing a wart
Contrary to the title of this picture, a complicated and convoluted machine to help a sufferer remove a wart from his head. A series of pullies and wheels activated by a lever will eventually succeed in lowering the user with a jolt and successful removing the wart which is precarious tied with thread hanging from a hook above the head. Yikes. Please note: Credit must appear as Courtesy of the Estate of Mrs J.C.Robinson/Pollinger Ltd/ILN/Mary Evan"
