The Story of Josef Panek

Was the Freighthouse ever the site of a desperate amputation? Possibly...

The tale
of an ordinary immigrant from Czechoslovakia (Bohemia then) who seeks a better future in late 19th-century Ypsilanti.

Also, tangents on the reluctant American acceptance of antisepsis and the higglety-pigglety structure of onetime local public welfare programs. Plus related Mystery Artifact.
