    Default My Old Demolished Hospital Mortuary


    Hi to everyone I just wanted to introduce myself to this new website. I am enjoying so much the Hospitals & Asylums page, & must say, on here are some outstanding photographs! I love abandoned places likewise. I once worked in a local Infirmary in Scotland it was, when I started already 110 years old & I worked in the operating theatres for four years as a Theatre orderly, before undertaking my legit training as an Operating Theatre Technician. Right across the Courtyard, under an arch was the Hospital's Mortuary which I visited twice whilst I worked there. What I found fascinating, & was inexplicably drawn to, was the Mortuary door! It was a single WIDE wooden door with a HUGE pane of frosted glass with emboldened calligraphy which I have faithfully replicated here-right down to the 'Lucida Calligraphy' Font! I hope members do like my effort-I have a further tale about the mortuary-but that will be another time.

    What issue are you having with the upload? I’m sure some of us will be able to help. I’d quite like to see your work, sounds like you have put a lot of effort in to it doing it from memory. Plus we all love a mortuary related tale here, you are in good company with us!

    Hi Brewtal

    Thank you. My page tells me: You may not post attachments-that is why possibly.

    Read the link Krela posted, you will have to host the image elsewhere such as Imgur or Flickr etc. then you will have the option to get a bbcode which you will copy and past into where you type a message, and once the message is posted it will display the image.
