Postcard: Vintage Coney Island Hospital Ambulance
Posted By Willie Simpson On December 14, 2012 @ 10:00 am In Arts & Culture | 5 Comments
Our friends at Friends of Ocean Parkway  via the twitter feed of NYC EMS Website , turned us onto this beautiful archival photograph of an old-timey Coney Island Ambulance from the early 1900s. This horse drawn ambulance probably had to deal with patients suffering catastrophic emergencies stemming from tuberculosis, pneumonia, and diarrhea, the three most fatal diseases of the era. Thank the lord that last one rarely kills, or our esteemed editor would go through several lives a day.
