Victorian treatment for mental patients. Often women were diagnosed as hysterical (anything from depression to anxiety) & placed in these cages. Any patient who was just upset in general were locked in these cages. Like farm factory animals, there was no room to bend the legs, sit up or move. Cruel treatment....If you weren’t insane when they put you into this contraption, you soon would be.
