Annual Report of the MOH for the Urban District Council of Bodmin [Cornwall].

pp. 12; 12. Printed paper wrappers, faint fold mark vertically, staples rusted and the sheets of the 1931 Report are now loose, else bright and clean.

* ' There was no offensive Trades or underground sleeping rooms and no action has been needed with regard to people living in vans, tents, sheds, etc. The arrangements for the disposal of the dead are adequate. During the year......... there was a great shortage [of water] especially in the higher parts of the town for a considerable period........ I do not consider that the present supply can be considered quite satisfactory as regards quantity. There is very little overcrowding, and very few houses in such a state that they cannot be made reasonably fit for human habitation.' Laconic but fascinating. TOGETHER WITH : BODMIN AMBULANCE DIVISION : Twentieth Annual Report. The St. John Ambulance Brigade. 1934. Folio sheet folded to pp.4. - ' The work of our Ambulance Division is increasing ...... during 1934 we have carried 213 patients - an increase of 21. These cases necessitated the Ambulance travelling a distance of 8,551 miles, which is a decrease of 865 miles.'
