Solar Laryngoscope by night

The Solar Therapeutic Laryngoscope was invented at Cragmor. It took the form of two concave mirrors that could be attached to the back of a chair. When a patient with TB of the larynx (such as several vocal stars of Broadway in the 1920s) sat reversed in the chair, with the sun behind her, light was directed into the back of the mouth for those healing UV sun rays to reach where they otherwise never could.

Here the device appears as a constellation or aurora over a night time long exposure shot of early Cragmor, over its roof, where so much heliotherapy took place.
