Brotherton Wing, Leeds General Infirmary


Date Built
Opened November 14, 1940
Calverley Street
This building is an extension to the Leeds General Infirmary first planned in 1926 in the modern style.  The attractive semi-circular balconies were intended to offer patients an opportunity to rest and enjoy the fresh air although the availability of air that could be regarded as fresh adjacent to a road that was increasingly busy with motor vehicles is problematic.  Apparently, the building was named after Charles Frederick Brotherton its benefactor.
