Scope and content

Contains photographs of:

Clifton Hospital, entrance to drive showing new wrought iron standards and absence of gates. 'For at least twenty years this Hospital has had no gates, a matter in which we took great pride. Recently the entrance has been reconstructed by our own out-door staff, the wrought iron standards being made by our own blacksmith.'

Clifton Hospital, sitting room, Ash Tree House. 'A major modernisation of the old "Annexe", now "Ash Tree House" was completed in 1959. This friendly sitting-room illustrates the successful result.'

Whixley Hospital, exterior front showing clock tower. 'A great asset at Whixley Hospital is the pleasant appearance of the buildings, dating from the early part of this century'.

Whixley Hospital, view of cricket march. 'A special feature at Whixley is the importance attached to team games, played with real enjoyment by the patients'.

Claypenny Hospital, view of roundabout, swing, donkey, children and staff. 'Thanks to the Amenities Fund we are able to provide all kinds of amusements, from swings to donkeys, for the children'.

Claypenny Hospital. A corner of one of the Children's Wards at Christmas. 'A lot of the toys are given to them by the Yorkshire Evening Presss Fund and for this we are very grateful'.

Claypenny Hospital, view of kitchen. 'The Regional Board were responsible for providing us with a much needed modern kitchen, a great help to the easy running of the hospital'.
