Riverview deserves heritage designation
A 12 ½ minutes film entitled Bedlam part 2, is being shown at the David Lam campus of Douglas College on Monday, 25th at 5:30pm. It shows old footage of the hospital before medication was widely used, hence the title of Bedlam.
Anna Tremere, founder of the Riverview Hosp. Historical Soc., and who also runs the museum, will be there, along with a nurse who was there at the age of 16 in 1945, and again from 1973 - 1988.
