On my recent trip to the UK I picked up this small collection of real photo postcards showing soldiers recovering at British convalescent hospitals. The postcard pictured here, and one other, was taken at Beckett’s Park Hospital in Headingley (near Leeds). Three of the remaining four have small numeric notations similar to ones on the Beckett’s Park postcards but at this point I can’t confirm where they were photographed. One of my favourite images was taken at Christmas and you can clearly see the Christmas tree and the bottles of beer on the patients’ bedside tables. You can view all these images in my Convalescent Hospitals set on Flickr.
