X-ray Film holder.

X-ray film holders hold the X-ray film onto which X-rays are developed. This example was made by Philips. Once X-rays had been discovered in 1895, physicians and surgeons were keen to use them to see inside the body without resorting to surgery. The holder is shown here with an x-ray film (A655722 Pt6).
