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.
