- Operating Theatre, Rockhampton General Hospital
This photograph shows an operation (either staged, or real) taking place in the operating theatre at Rockhampton General Hospital. It was taken c.1910 by Walter Perroux. We are not 100% sure if Beryl Campbell is in this photograph, however the nurse at far left could well be Beryl.
Walter E. Perroux was a well known, prolific and popular photographer of the late 1800s, early 1900s who opened a studio in Toowoomba. Perroux who began his business in Mackay travelled widely throughout Queensland and was a regular photographic contributor to local newspapers including The Queenslander in the early twentieth century.
