In October 1966, the Queen Mother visits Bristol Children's Hospital to celebrate its 100th anniversary. As part of the festivities she opens a new building housing Out-patients, Casualty, X-ray, and Pathology departments - the first major extension of the Hospital for 80 years which was much delayed due to the Second World War, when the Hospital was badly damaged during an air raid.
