City Hospital

Workers around the table

I assume that these are all workers from the City Hospital.

One looks young, but he also appears on a photo taken outside the hospital.

TB Patients

"I think the lads in this photo would be Tuberculosis patients on the balcony, getting their fresh air.  When I was on the TB ward at Bangour, the beds were put on the veranda as soon as it was felt to be warm enough for them, and they stayed there till the weather got colder again.

I might add that I was there in March and there were men outside then, day and night!"
