I remember that Hospital, as a child I was always intrigued by the roadsign outside which said '' Quiet please'', I always wondered how traffic could be quiet !

also if my memory serves me right Winter st hospital was a TB hospital

I worked at Winter St. hospital as a porter in the summer vacation of 1950 just before going to University. The hospital did indeed take care of T B patients.

I remember being interviewed for the job by a Mr Wall, who warned me that the man previously holding the job had been found in the potato shed in a compromising situation and that I should take care.

I don't know what the food was like, but the patients were always asking us to bring them fish and chips.

I must say I enjoyed the weeks spent at Winter Street ( they were far different from those of a summer vacation spent in a rolling mill).

There was an xray dept on Ellen st which ran off Sidney st

 

Yes Ellen street rings a bell too...perhaps I went there for the chest x.ray.....oh wouldn't it be great if you could just switch the brain onto rewind now and again.....we'd remember everything then wouldn't we?

My mind is permanently in rewind - I'm living in the past. :)

Did you know, the "cobbles" on Division street were made from wood ( :o ) instead of stone, to deaden the noise?

 

It was fascinating watching the workmen digging Division street/ Devonshire street up recently when they were doing the New Retail Quarter infrastructure works and seeing the wooden cobbles instead of stone ones!
