This was a major event in the history of the Kings Lynn hospital. Nursing staff, members of the church and dignatories gather for the official opening ceremony of the new wing - an out-patients, medical and ophthalmic block, by Her Majesty, Queen Mary on Saturday on 7th February 1935.The formalities of presentations, speeches and thanks took place in a marquee put up for the occasion.
An extraordinary "flashback" dream sequence features the House Governor in his office.He outlines his plans for future development of the hospital to a visitor who obligingly writes him a generous cheque.
The hospital was a privately funded institution reliant on fundraising events, donations and generous benefactors.
