The City of Derby, UK is the process of knocking down part of one the Old Hospitals’ in the city center – The Derby Royal Infirmary. Part of the landscape to go was the Nurses’ tower. It stood proud above the sky line for many years. Those who lived there spoke fondly about it. It held a lot of history over the years and had fulfilled its expectations. Now the time has come to make way for new buildings. So long.
Just rambling through the forest of life.
