The Sick Children's Hospital
The Silver City Vault user Ed Fowler commented:
"This image [was] taken within the Sick Children's Hospital, Castle Terrace. The early first floor ward, probably to the right of the Entrance where there was a shallow pitched roof, is ready for patients, is immaculately clean, with a shining polished floor evident. A small child sits playing with a teddy bear in the foreground. Several triple bracket gas light mantles can be observed suspended from the roof ceiling on central support and supply rods. The joist arrangement and access hatch evident suggests it was formerly Dr Blackies RN 1st-Floor Room in the past with five-side windows and two end windows. One suspects that this 14-bed hospital ward was not yet ready for the admission of patients as there appears to be quite a few members of staff posing about the still empty beds for ambience."

It was closed when Aberdeen Royal Infirmary at Foresterhill was opened in 1936.
