Old Maps of Lancaster

Historic Maps of Lancaster and the local area.

Proper name is the Royal Albert Hospital, not as we used to call the "looney bin". It is the second Asylum in Lancaster, the other being the Moor Hospital, or County Mental Institution. I worked in the kitchens here. A very spooky place full of gloomy atmosphere.

De Vitre was a public benefactor I think. A ward at the mental hospital was named for him.
