Door plate, England, 1860–1910. Dr John Ward Cousins (1834–1921), who owned this brass door plate, was a surgeon and ophthalmologist – eye specialist – working in Portsmouth, England from 1860 to 1920. Throughout the 1800s the physician’s job became more defined and their social standing improved. They became a unified professional class to rival the clergy and lawyers. The British Medical Association was founded in 1832 to “promote the medical and allied sciences and to maintain the honour and interests of the medical profession”.
