First Floor

This final shot of the eastern side of the first floor room shows the boxed shaft for the lifting of equipment and supplies.

There were also several holes in the floor which we were careful to avoid. Extra wooden boards had been put down as a walkway, suggesting the floor had become dilapidated during the working life of the hospital. Perhaps this level had long been abandoned?
