Victory Ball 13th August 1919


Victory Ball

Recreation Hall

Wednesday 13th August 1919 

 A captivating photograph.

The more you look, the more you see.


This ball, to celebrate the end of World War 1, was held in the Recreation Hall of Morisset Hospital.  For many years the Recreation Hall was the hub of social activity at Morisset Hospital.  The hall itself has changed very little over the years.  It even has a stage that slopes from back to front for easier viewing of the stage activities. 

Sadly the Recreation Hall is infrequently used, if at all, nowadays.
