Scope and content

This file consists of photographs that depict the buildings, equipment, and grounds of Riverview Hospital, as well as some projects made by individuals in its Industrial Therapy program. The file includes panorama and aerial photographs of Riverview Hospital, as well as photographs of construction and maintenance projects undertaken by the hospital's Public Works Department, such as hospital renovations, excavations, appliance repair, and fire damage. The file also includes repairs on vehicles maintained by the Transport Department. Additionally, this file has photographs of equipment and technology used by hospital workers, including photographs of the audiovisual department, electricians' sub stations, and notably Central Supply Room trays and supply trays for electro-convulsive therapy.
