This unique set of postcards was put together from a project in 2017 called 100 Years of Mental Health Care in Hampshire. They are a mix of historical images and contemporary photographs from Knowle and St.James Psychiatric Hospitals.
There are accounts of the history of the hospital, of treatments and changing approaches to mental health care in the 1960s, and even an essay imagining the future in 2000. A fascinating read for anyone interested in the local social history of mental health care.
