Magic lantern slide of Bevendean Sanatorium.
Bevendean Sanatorium was built in 1881 and was used to treat patients with contagious diseases such as smallpox.
The sanatorium originally consisted of a North and South block which were effectively wooden huts. These soon proved inadequate so Brighton Corporation took out a loan to construct new buildings.
In 1896 Borough Engineer and Surveyor, Francis J. C. May was charged with designing the new sanatorium. It opened in 1898 as the Brighton Borough Sanatorium.
