Thank you to Craig Statham, who lived beside Whitehill Hospital for many years, for allowing me to reproduce the postcard with the photograph taken around 1910.  This postcard was published by JM & Co, and is No 1186 in their Caledonian Series.

Dalkeith Fever Hospital

"This is the only postcard that I know of showing the old fever hospital at Whitehill around the time of its opening.  It is likely there are other old photographs of it, but I can't remember ever having seen any."
