Magic Lantern Slides of Victorian Hospital Wards

“From the 1860’s onwards, charitable hospitals did indeed exist, some specialising in particular medical conditions, others offering more general care and even treating accident victims. Many of the doctors weren’t paid for their time at these hospital and earned their living from private practice. So, free medical care was available long before 1948 and these slides probably show wards in charity-funded hospitals.”
