Children's Ward Cameron Hospital

What we know about this image :

This photograph shows Cameron's Hospital Children's Ward in 1932, a year after the department had opened. In that year an appeal had been launched by hospital president Sir William Gray, for funding because of unemployment in the town. The boy in the centre who had just had a mastoid operation was Harry Andrews who was also asked to 'fake' a broken leg and sore head and was shown sporting plaster cast, crutches and bandages in the highly successful appeal booklet. (see George Colley's Hartlepool Portrait book)
