Superb images, but, it is a little sad to see such a state of relative dereliction.

Like Frank, its is great to see the building still standing and sad that it is in a poor state of repair.

I think the marketeers have been at work here!



The Imperial Yeomanry Hospital at Deelfontein:

A correspondent, who has been a patient in the Imperial Yeomanry Hospital, writes “Very few at home could possibly realise what it means to struggle from the front, tired and worn, sick and cold, hungry and dirty, with perchance some gaping wound, callous to everything past, present or future, after sleeping on the open veldt exposed to all the varying weather of this African climate; and then to be placed in all the comfort, ease and luxury of this most perfect hospital. It is not long, under such treatment as we receive here before we recover from our wounds or sickness”.
