Bell Wing and Clinical Services Building photographs

Series consists of photographs documenting the destruction of the TGH Bell Wing and the construction of the Clinical Services Building. These photographs were taken by Dr. Cowan from his offices across the street at Cancer Care Ontario (620 University Avenue, Toronto, 15th and 13th floors) from May 2001 to July 2003, in order to document the event. Eight of these pictures were used by UHN’s Public Affairs Department at the official opening of the Clinical Services Building. Photographs had been arranged by Dr. Cowan in a binder entitled <i>Toronto General Hospital Pictures Before & After</i> and divided by film number and date. These divisions are reflected in the file titles.

Each head of a hospital’s Department of Medicine were sent copies.

Dr. Cowan organized these files with both names and numbers. File titles retain Dr. Cowan’s original titles and his file numbers are included at the end of the file titles in brackets. Arrangement is according to Dr. Cowan’s original numbering. There were two different files numbered 23. Files 1-21 and 37 were not donated to the Archives.
