Heavy-duty arm for a man with a left below elbow amputation. Blocked leather socket with a 'non-corset' webbing appendage with a leather front-V assembly and cordovan (leather) axillar pad. Long flat operating cord fitted with a large S-hook, attached to a lever for activating a 'push-rod' mechanism. {This operates a terminal device by means of a rod being extruded within the rotary when the lever is pulled upon}. Made by Steeper in 1946.
