The interior of No 2 Australian Auxiliary Hospital at The Atelier, previously a joinery,

and adjacent to 1 Australian General Hospital (1AGH) on the outskirts of Cairo.

The ward is crowded with beds, on many of which patients are sitting up or reclining.

Note the construction of the building, which uses local plant material. Like the other auxiliary hospitals, this hospital was established to ease the load on the two main Australian hospitals, which were overloaded with sick and wounded patients from the Gallipoli Peninsula.
