Old Photograph Royal Infirmary Glasgow Scotland


Old photograph of the Royal Infirmary in Glasgow, Scotland. Designed by Robert and James Adam, the original Royal Infirmary building was opened in December 1794. A number of additional buildings were added, the first in 1816, a specialist fever block in 1829 and a surgical block in 1861. Following the amalgamation of the old St. Mungo's College of Medicine into the University of Glasgow Medical School in 1947, the old College buildings on Castle Street officially became part of the hospital campus. The original Adams building was replaced in 1914 with a new building designed by James Miller and opened by King George V. In 1924, the surgical block in which Joseph Lister had worked was also torn down to be replaced. In 1948 the hospital became part of NHS Scotland.
