BIRRC-M0148.jpg

Prosthetic left leg with a brown leather shoe and chequered sock. The lower part of the leg appears to be plastic or metal covered with foam followed by flesh coloured plastic, whilst the upper part of the leg is metal and is also hollow. The joint of the knee is made to pivot where the upper and lower sections meet. The top-right of the leg is padded with cream and light brown leather cushions with an affixed strapping system to allow the prosthetic to be securely attached. A label stuck to the back of the upper leg reads 'Hanger: Stoke, Nov. 82/34', whilst a small round label near the top of the leg reads 'E895 D'.

Notes:  Part of the Leek Nursing Collection.
