if I am not mistaken this picture looks like the ward I stayed on it is D ward, it was 1963 I had a hip opperation when I was 12 yrs old, the ward sisters were Siter Pendlebury and Siser Seargeant, we used to have school lessons during the week and on a Sunday the Nuns came to give us religious ed. it is a great Hospital Mr Knowles was my surgeon then I have since been in for another Hip Opp the Drs and nursing staff do a marvellous job and the league of Friends do a lot of fund raising I owe a great debt of gratitude to this fine hospital
Don't think that's D Ward, looks more like Ward 5
Thank you for sharing this photo. If this was around 1955/56, then my grandmother would have been in at a similar time, she was known as Betty/Beatrice Maddern, at the time she was living in Blackpool, originally from Edinburgh. Sadly she died of TB in January of 1956, we're still trying to find out where she was buried.
