A rare sketching opportunity came my way when I was approached by a junior architect friend to provide drawings for his exhibition project at King Chulalongkorn Memorial Hospital, the second oldest hospital in Thailand, opened since 1914. My provision for this exhibition are sketch images of some original buildings, now all demolished, and other historically related images. The exhibition will be held from 9th to .. of June to co-incide with the up-coming Ananda Mahidol day on 9th June at Pathayapat Building in the hospital compound.
With a few rounds of walk in the busy public hospital that takes care for some 1500 patients a day plus several books for back ground, I proposed to have two main focal drawings for the exhibition.

An over-all aerial view of the hospital compound from Rama IV Road as it was some 50 years ago.
