Sister Mary Williams holds an oxygen tube to the nose of a young baby as she demonstrates the new cot she has designed at Middlesex Hospital, London. The cot is a 'box' on a stand and is leaning at a 45 degree angle: it can be laid flat. An oxygen cannister can be seen on the lower part of the frame. The original caption states that such "resuscitation apparatus is ready for immediate use if it is needed".
