Award Shortlist   


By Lou41
Lister 2 Ward where I work as a staff nurse. A very old ward as you can see. During the war it was used to treat the wounded soldiers. In 1942 (circa) Dame Vera Lynn came on to the ward and sang a few songs to lift their spirits.

The German soldiers next door were apparantly not invited!

The ward is apparantly haunted and a few of us (including myself) have heard unexplained noises! (especially on nights)

When I took this picture after closing the ward on a friday evening (only a short stay ward Mon - Fri) and uploaded it on to my computer, I noticed a strange 'face' in the curtain?? You might need to copy and paste it into PS the zoom in to the last bed on your left.
Let me know if you see it
comments welcome

I like the tone you have used on this gives it a real old feel ive enlarged it on my pc and i can see a head of a man on the curtain, but do feel it could be explained as when you go bigger it dissapears i think its like a pattern in the fabric but do agree i can see it.

Brilliant composition Lou,excellent tones that adds to the feel.
I tried to look for the face and resized but it was just to pixaleted.
I can fully understand this place being haunted all them poor souls that must have suffered here.

Hi Dennie thanks for your comments, i've just seen your modification pic, and noticed that you have framed an image that i had noticed before. The 'face' that i saw is immediatly left of your frame. See the larger version, cheers LOU

Thanks Mark, It might be better just to see the larger version, thaks for your comments, LOU

Oh, nostalgia...I wish the wards were still like this to be honest. Not a thing out of place and risking the wrath of Sergeant Major Alice, our fearsome Auxiliary Nurse lol!
Couldn't see a face's the living that frighten me anyway, not the dead Wink

Thanks Debbie, love my ward but unfortunatly due to the merger of two two hospitals our ward may face closure. No one knows yet (well, some one knows, but they are not telling!) so we are playing the waiting game.LOU x

Now that's a proper Hospital ward that is (ghost and all).

Brings back all sorts of memories and the sepia toning fits it well in my view.

(Reminds me of the one I spent several months in during the early '60s, being "repaired" after a motorcycle accident.)
