"Six-bedder" photos - 1953


Nurse Ritchie

It seems strange that Adelina Patti's boudoir should have acquired the mundane name of "six-bedder" but there it is, enshrined in everyone's memory, not as the bedroom of the most famous opea singer of her day, but known simply as: "The Six-bedder".

I wonder if anyone knows what Ward 2 and Ward 1 were used for in Patti's day?
