The collection comprises two black and white prints of original photographs. According to endorsements on the original photographs, they were taken by Spencer, Higson and Co., Technical Photographers and Illustrators, 1 Shakespeare Street, Nottingham:
Photograph of the interior of the Shipstone Operating Theatre, looking towards the large bay window with glazed roof (MS 362/1);
Photograph of the interior of the Shipstone Operating Theatre, looking the other way towards the door (MS 362/2).
Both photographs show the operating theatre, sinks, trolleys and other surgical equipment in the theatre.
The date of these photographs has been estimated by reference to the re-modelling of the theatre in 1932, and the fact that MS 362/1 was published in the hospital's Appeal Brochure Uhg Pr 1/4, p. 13, in 1934.
