Royal Prince Alfred Hospital's Department of Anatomical Pathology formerly known as Histopathology Dept. had a Christmas party every year. Everyone contributed a little for the event. Dr. Jelihovsky never failed to bring a few branches of holly from her own garden; Dr. McCarthy usually brought a whole case of cherries; the secretaries would help with decoration etc.
By Xmas 1984, the Gastroenterology Ward had moved out of the Fairfax Building to the brand-new 10-story main RPA building so Anatomic Pathology could expand into what used to be a patient's area on the 7th floor.
These photos were taken on what used to be the Gastroenterology Ward.
