In 1993 Gary Rowlands completed a photo portfolio of the people who worked at Salford Royal Hospital, which was about to close. The photos were displayed at Salford's Viewpoint Gallery, which closed in the mid-2000s.
These superbly crafted black and white photos capture the individuality of the person whilst bringing in details of the hospital environment, which looks decidedly quaint and old-fashioned. They provide a lasting record of a hospital which has a special significance for many people from the local area.
