Wishing your New Year is better than the poor fellow that lived in this hospital room.  The Dewitt Hospital was the first mental institution in British North America.  This room depicts how inmates were treated in the mid 18th century.  Notice the shackles!  The single window was encased in bars.  They did not want afflicted people back out in public.  How things have changed!

Without getting fancy, I tried to adjust the light tonality to the way I pictured the room.
