Does anybody have any pictures or information about the Thingwall Children's (TB) Convalescent Hospital, which was demolished and replaced by Murrayfield in the 1980s, I was in there in 1948,I've never seen any information about the place.

Hello, thanks for the info, a great help, in the photo from the air, you can see the beds pushed out into the fresh air to improve your health, it must have worked I'm still here 66 years later.

Thanks Marty that picture printed out very well, Suey 30, when were you there? the food left me with awful memories, eat it or else, mind you the rationing was still in force then (1948), I've never touched fish since I escaped, visiting hours were one Sunday a month for an hour. Wow.

I was in Thingwall in 1957 for about 6 weeks up until the middle of November. We were shoved out into the open even that late in the year. We would wake up covered in leaves. I did set up a page on Friends Reunited for the hospital hoping to see some of the staff but there were very few contributors. The building at the back of the wards that looks a bit like a marquee was in fact the school. We had 2 teachers on of whom was called Miss Parry. The hospital was divided into 2 separate wards, girls and boys.

I don't remember any of the teacher's names, but I remember the school, plus the very scratchy grey shirts/trouser and jerseys that you were given when you got there, I also remember the occasional escorted Sunday walks up to the reservoir, in small groups line astern like a Naval convoy. It's very nice to hear from other victims (sorry, I mean patients)
