Description:The front of the City General Hospital seen from Newcastle Road (A34).

The photograph shows the area that is todays main entrance off the A34.

From 1945 it became known as the City General Hospital. The ward building to the left is now the West Building, The 1884 site is now the Maternity and Cancer Centres.
