An Appeal on behalf of THE GLASGOW EYE INFIRMARY, by Sir ROBERT WILSON , LL.D.
The Glasgow Eye Infirmary has a proud record of service to the people of Glasgow, of the West of Scotland, and even further afield. Opened in 1824 in Incle Factory Lane, when the population of Glasgow was about 150,000, the Infirmary rapidly grew in importance. 208 patients were treated in 1824, and the number increased to 1,492 in 1852. New premises were opened in Berkeley Street in 1874, and these have since been extended. Last year the total number of in-patients was 1,768, while attendances of out-patients at Berkeley Street and Charlotte Street Dispensaries numbered no less than 75,262. The Berkeley Street patients included 1,336 children under five years of age and 2,366 children between five and fourteen.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
