R0207
This is probably a view of the prisoner of war area, a three-ward block which was located along Pythian Street. Note the barbed wire atop the tall chain-link fence. The prisoner-patients were allowed to attend church services, and were used in work details around the hospital (see picture R0288). Photo donated by Loy Cameron. Undated.
