glad you like them,
i remember the hospital,and i remeber there being an outbreak when i was in primary school, and mum used to tell us to put a scarf over our mouth when going outside because there was smallpox about, after that we all had to be vaccinated at school, i remember it being a suger cube!

I remember my Nan telling me when i was little--many years ago!!-- that when she lived in Seaview [just off Woodhead St,there's a car park there now] that a patient escaped from the hospital and they had to barricade themselves in there houses untill he was caught and taken back, he was caught in Woodhead St----just a bit of History for you!
chris.

I'm pretty sure the smallpox vaccination was by a scratch on the arm. The sugar cube was for polio I think.
