Comment A view of Micklefield Lane, on the reverse a message reads: “Hope this will find you alright, love from all, Evelyn”. It was sent to Mrs W Westcott who was a patient in the Leeds General Infirmary.

An identification number 6953 is given, in the past patients who had infectious diseases or were very ill were not allowed visitors, these numbers were published daily in the local newspapers under various categories ranging from dangerously ill to better.
In this way relatives were informed of a patients progress.

My brother lived in this first row (at the end) and the next big house was the Doctors residence. Dr Sproat – it used to cost us a shilling to go and see him. I remember him taking on a young man to follow him – Dr.Pollock a lovely Scot who was a stickler for the rules!! No pulling the wool over his eyes!! He was great.
