Photos From An Album

Harlow Wood Orthopaedic Hospital

By Pauline Marples

Acknowledgement - it is not possible to name individually the many people who have contributed over past years to my information on Harlow Wood Hospital, they are all acknowledged. The original source of some documents and photographs are unknown, anything published is done so in good faith to share the information and keep the memory of this wonderful hospital alive.

These wonderful pictures depict the early days of the hospital when life appeared quite carefree and patients were in hospital for a long time. The photos are on pages which were obviously part of an album  - who was the owner?
