Today's mural was completed in 1994, is 15' wide and 12' high. The title is "Honoring Early Physicians" and depicts three doctors that served the area around Lake Placid, Florida.
Dr. D.W. Crankshaw was a pioneer of holistic health, and believed that treating an ailment required treating the whole person. He practiced medicine in Michigan and on the Outer Banks of North Carolina before coming to Lake Placid in 1948, and served there until 1977.
Dr. Norman Tyler arrived in 1959, having interned in New York, and served in Tampa prior to arriving in Lake Placid. He was born in Birmingham, England but was sent to the US for his education. One of his pet projects was the physical well-being of high school athletes. Anyone who participated in sports received a regular free examination.
I thought it was a beautiful tribute to these physicians who were much beloved by their community!
