We have been given this aerial photograph of Aberdeen Royal Infirmary as it was in 1938 when the building were still surrounded by farms and fields.
The book Aberdeen Royal Infirmary: a history of the people’s hospital in the North East tells the story of the hospital from its origins in 18th century. It is available to borrow from the Medical Library.
For more interesting photos and information on early Aberdeen, visit the website Doric Columns.
