Marlborough's Growing Public Hospital. An aerial view taken this week by The Express of the Wairau Hospital in its attractive and extensive grounds. In front are the engineer's and medical superintendent's residences and medical staff flats. On the left is the old fever ward, now the porter's quarters. Behind Amersfoote Old People's Home (part of which was the original hospital) is the nearly-completed Nurses Chapel. Next, with its ramps, is the wing built during the war to take cases from the big camps in the district. Behind the main hospital block are the laundry, boiler house, and beyond that the workshops and watertower. The Nurses Home is at the top of the picture.
