Doctors office waiting room at Ellis Island


Ellis Islands psychiatric Hospital had medical personal and their families on permanent residence. The room architecture of this photograph is one that featured in JR’s Unframed Project, where he took historic photos of immigrants and hospital personal and pasted them on the walls.

The photo here illustrates a doctor working in his office with a shelf full of medical supplies. Juxtapose that against the old room, old, dilapidated chair and peeling paint on the walls, and the viewer gets the feel of what it would have been 100 years ago. The scene could be something for a creepy horror movie.
