Walpole, Doctor George Albert, Medical Superintendent, 1911—32, Devon Hospital

‘Some of the most fascinating images are those cloaked in obscurity — such as this funeral procession along one of Devonport’s suburban streets. We can look at such images as something outside of and beyond our own reality, but equally, they permit a personal, and at times confronting, avenue through which to consider social assumptions and cultural practices.’
