    Thumbs up St Peters Mortuary, Jan 2013.


    St Peters Hospital
    Mortuary

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    St Peters Hospital was built in the 1940's to house the casualties of WW2.
    But in time it was decided that the mortuary was too small to cope with the increase of bodies and too far away from the main hospital.
    So a new mortuary was built in the main buildings at the cost of 4.8 million...

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Great photos there :) We may well have been there on the same day, just for us it was dark.
    Why go through a door when there's a perfectly good window?

    ace shots, truly a great place
    Those who destroy what's been left behind, are those ignorant enough to believe that history only belongs in museums and books.

    This sends a shiver up my spine, your photographs have effectively captured the atmosphere!

    Thanks for the post.

    Hehehe. I started my working life as a Path Tech. The notice on the cooler door brings back a memory. In the mortuary I worked in, we had one cooler that, no matter what, could not be made to work properly. either froze its occupants solid, or actually ran warmer than ambient.

    It In the end, it was decided to disconnect it. A LARGE NOTICE, IN RED WAS PLACED ON THE DOOR AND THE DOOR LOCK WAS REMOVED. The notice said. "COOLER NOT IN USE. DO NOT PLACE BODIES HERE."

    The number of Monday mornings, especially in the summer when we knew some idiot porter had used the unit even before we got out of the car park! One of the worst experiences I had was when an undertaker had been called by the Police to recover a body from the river. (These are absolutely the worst to deal with.) The deceased had been dead for about a week and was in a terrible condition. Usually, they are put in the freezer, NOT a disconnected cooler.

    We decided that the only fair thing to do was get the undertaker concerned to visit us, and help us move the body. They didn't make that error again, however, it does go to show that people can have a total common sense melt-down more often than you might imagine.

    Well, that was a very long time ago now, and I moved on to flight training and eventually working as an airline pilot until I retired last year. Interesting work in both fields.

    Thanks for the pcis folks. Nice 'splore.
