We did this everyChristmas Eve - walking round all the wards, singing carols to the children -no off duty over Christmas but they were the happiest Christmases I remember.


It looked the same in the forties- not a speck of dust. We put screens round the bed if we were treating the child



The year after I left so some faces and Sister Tutor are familiar.

From the left Sisters Walters, Sharp and Moon - I worked with them all and have happy memories of them.

What WONDERFUL Pictures Pat...I got such a feeling about the place....I bet you were a FANTASTIC Nurse...You are so empathis and filled with such a caring spirit. I hope you get to see it all once again before it is torn down---if indeed that is something you want to do, of course...Some people don't like going back to certain places.

Naomi: I went back once with MTL soon after we were married and haven't felt the need to go again.
It's so much more technical now and is apparently bursting at the seams which makes a move vital.
It is going to have apartments built but there is some talk of keeping the facade. Thank God the name - and hopefully the spirit - lives on.

Wonderful pictures, Pat! These uniforms speak of a reassuringly efficient, thorough and capable discipline.

Sam: I'm afraid I can't relate to the pyjamas they seem to wear now.
