In 1912, Dr McLanahan, a Stonehouse doctor who lived in The Mount at the bottom of Regent Street, purchased a horse ambulance for the Stroud District.
The ambulance was to be kept at the Crown and Anchor Hotel (now the High Street Surgery)
The photo below from the Stroud News shows the ambulance parked outside the front door of the hotel.
The 2nd photo shows the doctor and the St John Ambulance Brigade, Stonehouse Division, outside The Mount.
