An exhibition of photographs and memories of Booth Hall Hospital
18 December 2013 — 16 March 2014
An exhibition of photographs gathered from ex-staff and patients from the now closed Booth Hall Hospital in north Manchester.
The hospital was once the heart of the community, the land was given to the sick and poor of north Manchester in 1909 by Sir Humphrey Booth, whose family once lived in the original Booth Hall.
The hospital was renowned worldwide and delivered ground breaking treatment to local people and beyond. The people who worked at the hospital said ‘they were like family’.
The last remaining block of the hospital was demolished in September 2013 and all that is left is the memories and photographs.
REELmcr is a dynamic, not for profit social enterprise, committed to giving a voice to the most alienated, deprived, under represented and vulnerable communities in the North West.
The Booth Hall project has been funded by The Heritage Lottery Fund.
