Throughout society there has always been a need for a mental asylum and it was early in the history of the new colony of NSW that the new facility at Tarban Creek was established and opened in 1838. Tarban Creek Lunatic Asylum subsequently underwent several changes of name. Dr Frederick Norton Manning, signed his first yearly report in October 1868 from the Hospital for the Insane, Tarban Creek, and the following year from the Hospital for the Insane, Gladesville. In the Inspector General’s Report for 1915, the title Hospital for the Insane was replaced by Mental Hospital, and by the mid 1960s the institution was known simply as Gladesville Hospital.

“Fallen” shows a typical scene within the walls of one of the many magnificent buildings within the grounds of the old Gladesville Hospital. Thankfully this building is being restored to it former glory.
