Endeavour: Hospitals in Whitby over Time

Artwork produced for Residency at Whitby Hospital, commissioned by Hafney (Hospital Art for North East Yorkshire), 2010. 

Endeavour, a history of hospitals in Whitby over time where records show the first hospital in 1109 by Spital Bridge until the present hospital on Spring Hill and the same site as the 1925 War Memorial Hospital built with donations from Whitby Residents themselves - truly their hospital.

These images look amazing. I bet the hospital and the nurses involved were really pleased?
