MOLLY- the graphic novel (model: Jocelyn Louise)

I am finding incredible primary sources on ETSY and am particularly impressed with VINTAGE BOOK LOVER.

I ordered vintage 1940s resources regarding Tuberculosis and intestinal disorders.

I was elated to receive a special gift of bowel disorder illustrations, which proved PERFECT for finishing today’s page about Molly’s brother, Joseph, who passed away at Essondale [where he was committed for 14+ years] due to pulmonary edema complications and intestinal obstructions.

I love reading the primary resources and building a picture of the family dynamics.
