March 1883: Concert in Glasgow Royal Infirmary

An article on page four of The Glasgow Herald, on Thursday the 22nd of March, 1883, reads:


GLASGOW ROYAL INFIRMARY. – A concert was given last night by the students of the Glasgow

Royal Infirmary to the nurses and patients of the Royal Infirmary. The new dispensary was kindly placed

at the disposal of the students by Dr Thomas, with the sanction of the managers, and it was crowded to over-

flowing. An excellent amateur programme was gone through, and it met with the hearty approval of the whole

assembly, as was evidenced by the laughter of many of the young patients who were present and the applause

of the whole. Perfect harmony prevailed, and a very pleasant evening was spent, which it is hoped will be only

the first of a series of such gatherings.”
