Old Bega Hospital 'before 1900s'. In all photos, the ends of the building (the Women's and Men's wards) are in weatherboard rather than brick, and have towers on the corners. The verandahs are partly enclosed with lattice. There is some attempt at a formal garden, with a garden path and circular garden in front of the main northern entry.
'Bega District Hospital (side view) in the nineties'. Main building from south west with weatherboard cladding, towers in corners, link to laundry with staff, laundry on right, lattice on verandahs, remnant red gums.
