Bond Street Maternity Hospital
« on: 09:00:57, 10/03/15 »
After watching "Call The Midwife" I have an urge to recapture my youth. I trained as a midwife at Bond Street Maternity Hospital, Westcoates Hospital and on the District from August 1968 to 1969. I lived in the hospital initially, then on Ruby Street and Tower Street. Finally I lived with a girl called Pauline  Murphy not sure of the name of the road. My name was then Marion Turner. Is there anyone on line who was there at the same time or who remembers me?

Bond Street maternity: Born there in 57. Last time I was opposite it was getting a tax rebate. The time before was when it was a working mens club, pitty of course it wasn't the other way round. Of course, when I was born there was the nr. 29 bus from Stoneygate ran in to the city and the L86 the same from Oadby. Other comments: BAILEY'S night club. I got a membership there, wasn't old enough, for 50p.A pint in the pub (The eclipse - long gone) 12p. Enroute town from Woolco's packet of 20 Nr 10 cigarettes 18p. 2 for the night and what a night it was. Later, Bragita's (Probably spelt wrong) now sainsbury,s down from the station: Chatting to the Late Bill (Buddy) Gask and Romeo Challenger (they owned it) Fun times all round, the worlds closing in on it's self.

I only came across this site by accident as I was being a bit nostalgic as I don't live in the UK. The Bell Hotel rings  a.....sorry that would be cheesy to finish that line. My Nr. 1 pub was "the carousel". Also the Rainbow and Dove when it was a "trad Boozer".  Jog my memory folks and I may recall and dust of the cobwebs.

The Rainbow and Dove, use to play table football for them, it was rough pub, did you use the Queens, just down the Rd. Stanford and Marquis of Wellington also springs to mind. I too moved on, NZ.
