EDITORS COMMENTS
This print from Memory Lane Prints takes us back to the bustling atmosphere of Newcastle General Hospital in March 1979. In this snapshot, we witness a crucial aspect of hospital operations - the laundry department. The image showcases two dedicated volunteers, Wynn Griffiths and Len Key, diligently loading freshly washed linen into a large industrial dryer. The scene exudes an air of efficiency and teamwork as these unsung heroes work tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure that patients receive clean and comfortable linens during their stay at the hospital. Their commitment is evident in their focused expressions and coordinated movements. This photograph not only captures a moment frozen in time but also provides valuable insight into the social history of 1970s UK industry. It serves as a reminder of how essential services like laundry were managed before modern advancements took over. As we reflect on this image, it prompts us to appreciate the often overlooked efforts made by individuals like Wynn Griffiths and Len Key, who selflessly volunteered their time to support vital institutions such as hospitals. Their dedication embodies the spirit of community service that has always been an integral part of society. In essence, this remarkable print encapsulates both nostalgia for a bygone era and admiration for those who played significant roles within it.
