Visual Still Information

Title: Colson India Reed Wheelchair
From: Wheelchair Advertisements
Original caption: When a wheel chair is required it is either to give a little outing to someone convalescing from an acute illness or else it is wanted for someone who is permanently disabled and the one thing that is vital is the comfort and convenience of the occupant. We have specialized in developing a line of Wheel Chairs to meet every condition of invalidism. A copy of our catalogue with prices and complete information will be gladly sent on request.
Anyone may well be proud of the attractive outdoor model illustrated, our No. C-3. Genuine India reed body is designed for comfort and the springs and cushion rubber tires makes riding a real pleasure.
