Home Up

Later in his life Geoff Carrington was suspected of having tuberculosis and sent to the Eastby Sanatorium (Bradford Poor Law Sanatorium at Eastby nr Skipton) which opened 3rd Nov 1903 with 33 beds.

This page has some photographs of Eastby Sanatorium (near Bradford) and it's occupants and staff.

 

Geoff Carrington is third from the right in the back row (framed by the window) in the photograph below.

In the photograph below, the teacher seated in the middle in the black and white checked suit is Edith Pitcher, who befriended Geoff Carrington. She also came from Norwich, possibly why she befriended Geoff, and she later returned to Norwich. Geoff's children came to know her when they were brought up in Norwich. The photographs on this page came from Edith's niece.
