Multiple patients receiving dental care at the Don CeSar Beach Hotel in St. Pete Beach, Fla.

Abstract/Description: During World War II, the Don CeSar Hotel (opened 1928) was converted to a military hospital (1942) and later (1944) a U.S. Air Force convalescent center. This photograph was taken during the period in which the hotel was serving as an active hospital. Several patients are seated at dental care stations in a hallway inside the Don CeSar Beach Hotel. Each patient is being treated by two dental professionals, which are shown to be a male and female pair. The patients appear to be dressed in military uniforms, and many are receiving dental examinations. There is a small orange stain located in the center region of the photograph that is not original to the artifact.
