Fort Street Hospital: Sources A and B

Source A: Douglas Bay viewed from Douglas Head, 1872. The Fort Street Hospital is located in the middle of the right-hand edge of the photograph, and has been labelled at the side.

Source B: Douglas Bay from Douglas Head, taken shortly after the completion of Loch Promenade in 1878

Questions to consider:

  1. Can you find the Fort Street Hospital on both photographs? (Hint: Use the St Barnabus church spire to help you)
  2. How has Douglas changed in the years between the photographs?
  3. How has this impacted on the location of the hospital?
  4. How do you think this might affect its ability to treat patients effectively?
