Boiler House

23 Sep
This strange looking place is the boiler house of  Hull Royal Infirmary which, as you might expect, needs lots of hot water for heating and cleaning. Nowadays it’s powered by gas but when first built, in the early 60’s, it ran on coal stored in that massive hopper on the right.
The weekend in black and white is here.

    When I was a little lad, my dad used to tell me that it was the place where they burned up all the organs and bits of bodies they'd removed/amputated in the hospital.
