A great turnout of Redbubblers met at Gladesville Mental Hospital this morning for some photo opportunities.
Gladesville Mental Hospital (formerly Tarban Creek Lunatic Asylum) operated from c.1838-
Surviving records cover c.1822-1985
In 1838 the lunatic asylum was moved from Liverpool to Tarban Creek, Gladesville and the first patients were transferred from Liverpool Asylum and the Female Factory, Parramatta. It accepted patients from Victoria up until 1848 when the Yarra Bend asylum was opened. By the mid 1960s the institution was known simply as Gladesville Hospital. In 1993 premises at Gladesville Hospital and Macquarie Hospital were revoked as hospitals, and were amalgamated to form the Gladesville Macquarie Hospital.
