About this memory
The entrance on the North side of the Health Centre to the Child Welfare Unit, forerunner to Ante-natal Units. In the entrance was a statue by Thomas W Whalen of a lady breast feeding.(See photo in this Scrapbook)
The large window on the second floor was the Dentists Surgery.
The main entrance was a flight of steps from the car park on the west side opposite what was the Sighthill Inn.
These led to a sort of veranda and the glass doors through which you entered the Reception Area.
A glass cabinet stood in the foyer area depicting accidents
which could happen in the Home, illustrated by small dolls or puppet figures covered in blood!
It was always eerily quiet with the sickly, mixed smell of disinfectant and Dental Gas which permeated down from the upper floor Dental department.
