For Friday we find ourselves visiting an old friend. I worked with a man once who constantly mixed up his metaphors and he would say of this that it was a case of "veja du"! The Royal Infirmary on Infirmary Road with a wonderful collection of glassed greenhouses in the foreground, and several infirm infirmarians on the grass bank resting in the sunshine. These Royal plates really do provide the most amazing images!
