History of Aberdeen Royal Infirmary

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.

Aberdeen Royal Infirmary in 1938

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.

Medical Library gems

Our lovely new blog header is taken from Illustrations of dissections: in a series of coloured plates the size of life by G.V. Ellis, published in 1876.

It is one of the many reference books from the 19th and early 20th century held in the Medical Library. All our reference books are available for consultation in the library.

Come and ask us more about them or even browse them on the Ground Floor of the Medical Library.
