Searchlight sites typically comprised a small ring-ditch to provide the crew with shelter during an air raid, a predictor emplacement for calculating the height and range of targets, a light anti-aircraft machine gun pit, a generator and hutted accommodation for the crew (Defence Of Britain Project)

Annexe to the City Hospital in Fazakerley. It opened in 1901 with 160 beds for smallpox patients and was intended as a temporary hospital until the larger City Hospital was built, although it was still in use in the 1950's. This temporary hospital consisted of a brick pavilion, four wooden pavilions, an isolation pavilion and discharge block, mortuary, coalhouse as well as other small functional buildings. Harbreck House was used as the nurses quarters and administration block. [Text modified from http://lostliverpool.blogspot.co.uk/2008/02/history-of-university-hospital-aintree.html]
