Colourised postcard, Royal Sussex County Hospital

Colourised postcard of the Royal Sussex County Hospital, early 20th Century

A colourised postcard with an oblique view of the Royal Sussex County Hospital as it looked in the early 20th century. Here, the grounds and the shape of the original Barry Building and its two wings are clear to see, reflecting the vision of order and symmetry that guided its architects. At this time, the brick facade of the building is not rendered in stucco.
