Original caption: Chicago: Brodie Siamese Twins. Rodney and Roger Brodie, Siamese twin boys joined at the top of their skulls, lie in bed at the Illinois Research and Education Hospital, where they have lived almost since they were born, Sept. 16, 1951. Surgeons are ready to defy medical history by attempting to separate the twins. Only twice before have operations been attempted on twins similarly joined, and both failed. Exhaustive tests have been made to determine the most significant fact -- that the boys have distinctly separate blood and nervous systems.
