Finally this is the outside of the New Cancer Clinic showing the Great Style of the Building. This makes the The Christie the Biggest Cancer Hospital in Europe. Also the leading "drug companies" can try out their latest drugs with the Permission of the Patients. Its a Gamble, but you would try anything to extend your life. (Yes!)

This is the Triumph Mayflower, (not to sure what year?) It's a Magnificent Open Topped Sports Car with a great Colour. It has two good size seats at the front, and the back seats are Dicky Seats, so not to much room. It was built for Touring Holidays

This is a Reconstruction of the Burial Chamber that Howard Carter found in the tomb. He carefully photographed everything with his plate graph camera. So we have a very good idea of the Breath Taking of the scene that he found in 1922.
A Brilliant Labour Saving Device in the New Extension is this Pneumatic Delivery System, which delivers Blood Samples to the Blood Laboratory in the main hospital building. The sample's are Patients Blood which is carefully monitored during "Chemo". I remember the Co-op used to have the same system in the 1950s for money. So nothings new. LOL.

This looks like a Ford Consul Shooting Brake, but I am not sure?. Notice the Chrome Strips on the Doors and Body Work. It was found later that at the conjunction of the two metals caused metal corrosion to the body. Now days Chrome Strips have plastic underneath them.
