John Holdsworth Rescues Old MHH Photographs

Our thanks go to John for having the foresight to recognise that these photographs would one day be of interest to many and also for saving them from being destroyed and bringing them to our attention. 

His words follow:

I work for the Leeds Teaching Hospitals Trust which, as you know, is the successor to the Leeds Eastern District Hospitals Group which oversaw Marguerite Hepton Hospital. I have an interest in history and photography and in a discussion with a hospital manager a while ago, I was informed that there were a number of sets of old photographs of now demolished Group B and Leeds Eastern District Hospitals in an old store room and that I could have access to them to scan them for my collection.
