Asylum photos go on display

Have your say

PHOTOGRAPHS depicting the former Middlewood Hospital feature at an exhibition in Sheffield’s Winter Gardens.

The pictures, on display until Thursday, March 22, are part of Rotherham-based photographer Luis Arroyo’s collection.

He launched an online project concentrating on the former Victorian asylum which closed in 1996 after 124 years.

The images on display are a selection from the project which has more than 1,000 photos and illustrations and includes rare film footage.
