Judy Vigue donates two paintings of the old Queen Victoria Hospital as the hospital prepares for its 100th anniversary in Revelstoke.

Julie Lowes and Evelyn Ens hold up a painting of the old Queen Victoria Hospital by artist Judy Vigue. Vigue, who worked at the old hospital, donated the prints as part of the hospital’s 100th anniversary celebration.

The cornerstone of the original hospital was laid on Aug. 21, 1912, and a celebration is being planned to mark the moment, said Lowes, the site administrator.

The old hospital was located where the Alpine Village Mall currently stands. The current hospital opened in 1970.

Of the two paintings, one will go up in Queen Victoria Hospital and the other in neighbouring Mt. Cartier Court.
