Portable Chest X-Ray Unit

Many of the endemic diseases that had killed children and young adults were gradually eliminated through better sanitation and medical immunization by the mid-20th century, but others remained. Here, a portable chest x-ray unit is set up outside the Winnsboro Mills in 1950 to screen for heart and lung diseases.
