I have a photo of my granddad with a large group of men & one lady who is seated in the middle of the front row(appox 80 men) it has the year 1934. I have no idea why he was there, all of the men look healthy & well dressed ?
Found a photo of group of patients. I know my dad, Frederick Welland was there because of convalescing from pleurisy/TB or some similar condition. Would like to have shard the photo, but appears not possible on this message site.

I am doing family research on my father Frederick Smith from Coventry Warwks and recently came across a photo of a group dated 7th Sept 1953. Would love to find out more and possibly why my father was sent there. He passed away 10th Jan 1954.
