FRAMED 23. Peel Hospital auction (Nov. 1988)

The last operation at Peel Hospital was carried out on December 7. 1988.

It wasn’t medical – but the sale of surplus beds, stretchers, trolleys, walking sticks ... and even bedpans and items from the old X-ray department. Auctioneer Jack Clark and his staff from John Swan and Sons catalogued the equipment prior to the sale.
