Things you didn't know about Taplow
It stays impressive to me how seemingly arcane snippets of the Haldane story turn out to be someone else's obsession. This photograph of the Canadian Hospital in Taplow comes from the hospital's own memorial site.
The hospital was a project of the wealthy Astors in the neighbouring Cliveden estate. J. S. Haldane wandered into its history in early 1917, when he worked with the Candain gas victims recovering there. From this work stems the deep oxygen treatment we use in hospitals to this day. Medical advances are one of those few good things which emerge from wars.
