Looking forward to Tweeting you

LHSA has a very rich, diverse photograph collection, dating back to the early years of photography. To help celebrate this, and highlight some of the less well-known images and stories, we have decided to put up a series of themed images on Twitter in the following weeks. As a quick taster of what's to come, here are just a few:

 A delivery to the Blood Transfusion Service at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh, 1940s.

Dr Margaret Martin, Paediatrician at the Elsie Inglis Memorial Maternity Hospital.

Bangour Village Hospital staff and Harry Lauder, 1942.

Occupational therapy in the Royal Edinburgh Hospital garden, c1960.

Ward 14 at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh, 1937.

Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh Residents 1854 (resident first year doctors) including pioneer of antiseptics, Joseph Lister, front row, third from the right.
To see more great images, look out for our tweets in the next few weeks. If you haven’t joined us on Twitter, our account can be found at
