A while ago someone was asking if there were any photos of Glenroyd maternity hospital. I found this on a fb page and hope the person who posted it is correct.
Evening Potty, I lived just a few hundred yards away on the opposite side of Whitegate drive in Cumberland avenue from 1948-1955 and that picture just doesn't remind me at all as I remember it.

However saying that on my last visit taking my grand daughter on a tour of old Blackpool haunts, the area has changed so much, in all honesty Whitegate drive is barely recognisable from when I lived in the area.
I did wonder Whits. GSP (I think) may have put the same one on here but not sure where and I think somebody, probably you actually!, said it wasn't glenroyd. Got my teeth into this now. There's got to be one somewhere!

Thanks Lancashirehotpot.



I think its is. Just sent it to my Mum (81 and just starting to e-mail, get her on FB next!!), to make sure.

I have been looking and asking for years for a picture.

One to go on the family tree



:thumbsup:
I spent at least 3 hours last night going through so many websites and fb pages, any link I found kept coming back to this one. Even thought about emailing the care home that is on the site in the vague hope that they might have something! Said I'd got my teeth into this! If your mum says it is, in fact, glenroyd then I'll stop looking! However.....:)

Its a doctors surgery on the old site . With a care home behind it. Only know that because when still at mum and dads that was our doctors .
Maybe we need a thread specifically for pics of old Blackpool, with comments! I know originally it was the cooperative society's convalescence home and it was used as an EMS maternity home until '84. I found a list of all the staff, I believe, just no other photo than this!! I will carry on my search!
When it was a nursing home taken from the garden at the rear.

I've emailed the co-op society's archive, fingers crossed!
Yay! It is Glenroyd, pre renovation, after which it looked quite different.

Just spent 20+ minutes pouring over a street map from 79! The greyhound track! Love old pics like this! Cheers Seasider!
•The Boston University Bridge (on Commonwealth Avenue, Boston, Massachusetts) is the only place in the world where a boat can sail under a train driving under a car driving under an airplane.



I had a mental 'picture' of a double-deck bridge, with a railway on the lower deck and a roadway on the upper, but the rail and roadways are on two separate bridge structures - see the below photo!

Some non-league grounds suffering due to the rather damp weather we have been getting - Staines Town and Gloucester City (that last one lasting some time like this now) - I was gonna say for your 'amusement', though hardly at all amusing for them! ...







































Kind of nicked from the other site:

Notice how everybody is smiling.. Don't think you'd see that at train stations anymore!
