Two Patients In The Grounds Of Colinton (City) Hospital 1939


About this memory

Alec McKinnon and Robert Martin.

"My father is with fourteen-year-old Robert Martin. They were patients at the City Hospital (then known as Colinton Hospital) and Robert was dying. He wanted a suit before he died. My Mum and Dad bought him a new outfit of suit, shirt, and shoes for £3." - Margartet Brodie (née McKinnon)
