We're working on a little history project here at Littleton Regional. I've had the privilege of interviewing retired physicians who spent their careers affiliated with Littleton Hospital/Littleton Regional Hospital, now known as Littleton Regional Healthcare. One of the physicians' grandfather's primary occupation was at the Saranac Glove Company in Littleton,NH, but he was also the "driver" for two physicians. Whenever these physicians needed to make a "house call", this gentleman left the Glove Company, got the horse and carriage/sleigh rigged up, and delivered the physician to the patient!

Another anecdote that cracked me up was that back in the day (early 1900's), people thought they could identify the more successful physicians by the quality of their horse!

Happy Friday everyone.
