|||Administration block for Killingbeck Smallpox Hospital under construction (Killingbeck) (3 comments)
|19th April 1915
View looking southwards, showing the new Smallpox isolation ward under construction. The main block was originally the farmhouse of Killingbeck Farm to which the new extension was connected. These buildings were part of a small separate compound which became known as 'Killingbeck Smallpox Hospital' situated on the slopes of Wykebeck Valley. The compound also contained one new ward, a small mortuary and some converted farm buildings.

|||Administration block for the new Smallpox ward, alterations in progress (Killingbeck)
|19th April 1915.
Image shows alterations in progress to the Administration block, contained within a new isolation hospital for Smallpox which included the farm buildings, a new temporary ward and a small mortuary. The Administration block had been converted from the farmhouse of Killingbeck Farm. The frontage extension was accompanied by more substantial building work at the rear of the house. The compound was distinctly separate from the nearby sanatorium. Killingbeck Sanitorium opened in 1904, originally as a Smallpox hospital, but a decision was made by the City Council, in 1912/13, to convert it to a treatment centre for Tuberculosis in accordance with the National Health Insurance Act. The building of the Smallpox isolation ward took place at the same time. The plans were approved on the condition that the main hospital, Killingbeck Sanatorium, would be vacated in the event of an epidemic of Smallpox as the new, single isolation Smallpox ward may be unable to handle the case-load. Although there was one particular outbreak of Smallpox that came close to this being put into practice, it never actually happened. The hospital closed in 1997 and the site is now a retail park.
