There are six illustrations in this paper. The first two show the layout of the sinuses. The other four are haunting.

From M.H. Gill (1906), Diseases of the Maxillary Sinus, Yale Medical Journal XII(9):821-829:

maxillary-sinus-1

maxillary-sinus-2

maxillary-sinus-3

maxillary-sinus-4

These people (three adult men with abscesses and “a female aged ten” with cancer) got sick and came to St. Francis Hospital around 110 years ago. We hope they got better.
