Patients, Nurses and The Coopers

Patients are sitting, one is in a wheelchair with an awning. Mrs Cooper is wearing a white dress and Mr Cooper is wearing a stetson. One of the cooper boys is on a rocking horse and wearing a helmet.
Patients of the Gables Hospital and the Cooper family. Can you spot one of the Cooper children? It appears that many of the soldiers had injuries to their legs, as a lot of them have crutches. Clipping from the Surrey Comet. From The Gables Hospital Album, Ref KX172, 1899 -1901, held by Kingston Museum and Heritage Service.
