Description:This is the main entrance to the Brindley Hospital Site with the admission building half way down the main roadway on the left in between the twelve wards blocks. The sign by the entrance mentions the Isolation Hospital which is further down the road past the Sisters' and Nurses' accommodation blocks. This would mean the photograph was taken later in the hospital's existence but before the First World War ended, at which point it was extended.

The nurse sending this postcard has marked Ward no.5, and her accommodation is on the right as the road bends. The Officers' Quarters and Mess are on the left, set at an angle as you enter the site.
