Arrow Severalls Hospital -"now & then"

Severalls Hospital (orginally Essex Second County Asylum)

"Now & Then"

During my visits to Severalls, the thought had often crossed my mind "I wonder what this looked like" and "I wish I'd seen this before it had been trashed / destroyed". To cut a long story short, a local Historian got in touch (who happens to be the proud owner of the real white wooden greenhouse, as featured in one of the corridor murals). He kindly lent me a book which was commissioned just after Severalls Hospital closed it's doors for the last time in 1997. I hope that these pictures will be of some interest. I've also tried to sift through my "cough, cough" small number of recent photographs, to see if I took any pictures of the same room / corridor / same or similar perspective etc. (some areas I'm not too sure about, so please let me know if I've incorrectly matched up my pics with the old ones)
I will upload these photos as often as I can. If anyone else has photos taken which match the old photos, please feel free to add them.
The only thing I would ask is PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE don't copy these pics (as my friend has copyright). If anyone would like to use these pics, please get in touch first. Thanks

First photo to follow shortly......


Think we're gonna need a bigger boat
