Description (Object or Artwork): This monochrome photographic postcard was produced when the Royal Pavilion was used as a military hospital for wounded Indian soldiers during World War One. The image shows Ward 8, a room on the upper floor of the Royal Pavilion. It shows a row of beds containing convalescent Indian soldiers. Although most of the rooms on the lower floor of the Pavilion were photographed, this is one of only two on the upper floor that were caught on camera. Situated on the southern end of the building, the roof of this room had been modified in the mid-nineteenth century, and had served as an exhibition space.
