"This chair is at the Bethlehem Historical Society. It is the earliest wheelchair I have seen. The chair itself is unremarkable, a dining chair with a commode cutout in the seat. The hand wrought wooden wheels and iron work are very interesting. They did not seem to have much history on the item, but it was along with many items from St. Luke's Hospital."
