First time I have seen this building/angle at close range. Described as the new Isolation wards that opened in 1909. (Possibly No 10 or 11 in bottom photo). The Baillie Street 'Thames Hospital' is in the background on the right. The houses on the hills above the ward are in Edward Street, Thames.
Given the location of the tall tree, it seems that this photo could be No 11 before further additions. If so this was the building used by the School of Nursing pre 1950s. (More research required!)
