Two Wards

"I think these photos would have been of two wards, on either side of a corridor, one male and the other female patients. 

They didn't mix them in these days, apart from children - and in fact the 'powers-that-be- now realise that mixed wards don't really work and are reverting back to single-sex wards again."
