Physical Description

Framed ecru linen cloth with a 5cm hem. Multicoloured signatures cover the cloth. They follow the line of a central circle created by the name 'Crystal Brook District Hospital'.

Theme and Purpose

Commemorative. Fundraiser. Crystal Brook District Hospital. This embroidered cloth was the brainchild of Mrs Kendrew in 1923, to raise money for the newly built Crystal Brook Hospital. Each person made a donation and signed their name. The signature was then embroidered. The cloth was completed in 1926. A Queen competition was also held in Crystal Brook to raise money for the local hospital.
