Photograph of the rear view of the Nurses' Quarters at St George's Hospital in Bombay from the 'Album of architectural and topographical views, mostly in South Asia' by an unknown photographer in the 1890s. St George's Hospital was designed by John Adams (1845-1920) and completed in 1892. Adams joined the Public Works Department in 1869. Working principally in the Neo-Gothic style dominant in Bombay at this time, Adams designed over 25 buildings in the city. His commissions included the Wilson College and the Royal Bombay Yacht Club. In this photograph of the rear view of the Nurses' Quarters at St George's Hospital we can see that the building is rectangular in plan and has a high pitched roof. The rooms themselves are accessed by an exterior balcony.
