Saltaire Hospital (now Titus Salt Apartments)

Saltaire Hospital, known today as Titus Salt Apartments, pre-1908. The Saltaire Hospital and Dispensary was completed in 1868. Despite efforts to reduce the dangers of mill work, injuries were still commonplace but, with the existence of a hospital and dispensary so close at hand, accidents and illness could be dealt with promptly. The original hospital was two storeys high and had nine beds. A third floor was added in 1908-09, making it able to provide 17 beds. During 1926-27, the hospital was further extended to accommodate a further 30 beds
