label levels:

There is currently no available "Beginner" label. The following is the default level label: Dr. Charles Canedy may have worked in this ward of convalescing soldiers and civilians in the town of Vladivostok, where he had been sent in the winter of 1918-19. Canedy was a part of a large contingent of American troops sent to Siberia during the Russian Civil War (1917-1922). To the right, a child appears to be recovering well, as do most of the others in this ward. Hospitals tended to group patients at similar stages of recovery. This ward appears to contain patients nearing discharge. A tall porcelain stove at the end of the ward staves off Siberia's intense winter chill.
