It looks that the photo was taken from where the car parks are now and long before the houses on The Avenue were built. Obviously other wards and departments were added on to the main building as they became to be needed so this photo, although still recognisable, looks very different from today. The buildings with domes annexed off the wards look to be day rooms with verandas and possibly for patients with TB, maybe?
Nice photo Cyril.It looks unrecognisable with all the land surrounding it.
A pity it lost its Accident And Emergency facility !
Too right Steve from Leigh to go to the A&E at either Wigan or Bolton is a long way, and especially so with someone clutching their chest.
