Artist's Description

Now a private residence.The hospital was built high above the town on the side of the mountain because in it’s day the smog,steam,noise and dust from mining activities was so bad.
Placing the hospital up there meant patients could breath clean air.
According to a local there were a number of satalite towns just out of Walhalla, located there for the same reason as people did not want to live in such dirty conditions, prefeing to travel 4 or 5 km a day each way for benifits of clean air.
