Work Description: 
Very fine early picture of the hospital with 9 people on front steps and with beautiful horse and buggy shown in side view. It is not known which of the two men on the front steps is Dr. Griffin. In the front doorway, behind the screen is a bearded patient dressed in a robe and partially visible on the left nanel of the front door is the sign " MITTED AYS and SUNDAYS - 2 to 4 PM.' Above the doorway a patient watches from an upstairs window, while three patients on the porch at the left are also watching. One has a mustache and a derby hat. Four vertical bands of chicken wire have been stretched from the ground to the porch roof to serve for climbing ivy. Three bicycles are visible. They have no fenders and no mechanical brakes are visible. They may have coaster brakes but the rear brake arm for such brakes can not be seen. Possibly they are direct geared with no coaster feature. The bike at the right has a tool kit strapped to the front bar frame with the metal trouser guard clipped around the kit. The buggy has wire wheels and looks very new. See 13-6 which was probably taken a few minutes before this picture. If we number the 9 people here 1 to 9 from left to right, lady No. 5 is standing by the open left door in 13-6, Lady No. 2 is third from left in 13-6 and Lady No. 4 is second from left in 13-6. In 13-6 the buggy is tied to the left hitching post while here the horse and buggy have been put on display. This picture appears on pg. 100 of Glory Colorado where Dr. Griffin is identified as the man in the lower right who was DR. LUMAN GRIFFIN who was Dean of the Medical School from 1896 to 1907.
