The Hahnemann Hospital, Liverpool, identified as the subject of the photographs from the names of the medical officers placed above the beds, was founded for the benefit of the sick poor of Liverpool by the sugar magnate (Sir) Henry Tate. After thirty years' personal experience of homoeopathy, he paid for the construction of the hospital in Hope Street, Liverpool, in 1887. It opened as a public general hospital, taking cases similar those admitted by the other general hospitals of the city. See T.H. Bickerton, A medical history of Liverpool, London 1936, p. 116
