Ron Doig Block


· Fremantle ·

I hope Ron Doig, Sr. liked air conditioners, because his memorial building is encrusted with them:

I cycled through the hospital on my way home, and realised that the second heritage-listed building on the site did not yet have its own category. It does now (although I might try to get some more photos with more care next time).

Before they built this, the outpatient arrangements were "totally inadaquate to deal with the large number of suffering humanity seeking medical relief."[1] Not to put too strong a word on it or anything.
