Ancoats Hospital Receipt of Payment – 1923

This is an official company receipt for payment for 5 shillings (about £11.10 in modern money) signed by Mr B Delury and dated 31st March 1923.  The day Blackpool beat Manchester United 1-0 at Bloomfield Road and 25 years before the birth of the National Health Service which was born at the Trafford General in 1948. It was also signed during the reign of King George V  and the year of the royal wedding of the Duke and Duchess of York.

HRH Duchess of York would later on 9 July 1935 officially open the new Ancoats Hospital buildings, just under a year before she became Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother on 11th December 1936.

The receipt was made by H Johnsons & Sons Limited, Manchester.
