The Historical England Archive

The Historical England Archive have recently put online the recently rediscovered collection of more than 4,000 medical images from the Topical Press Agency Medical Collection.

The images document health care from 1938 to 1943, and detail wartime hospital staff, patients, procedures and practices. Many of the images are quirky, surprising and emotive, revealing an extraordinary slice of 1930s and ’40s Britain.

There are some of Addenbrooke’s in the collection. To see more please visit their site:
