    Coton Hill Hospital about late 70's, early 80's (when I lived in Mynors Street.) The view is from some open ground (as was then) at the back of the east side of Westhead Avenue. This was quite a formidable looking building which we were told as kids was where they kept rich nutters, so we were always a bit scared of going up there. Didn't stop us from 'scrumping' apples from the orchard on the 'Rec' side though. :hmm:
    (Rec kids weren't scared of anything ... but that might have been because we didn't really know what a 'rich nutter' was. )

    Brought back memories of the old Dartmouth Street boys school / Kingston secondary for boys when I was there having my covid test yesterday. Along with memories of the Riverway girls school up the road from there (junction of Riverway/Lammascote Rd ).

    Conway was the headmaster when I was there. We used to stand at the gates on Fairway having a crafty fag and watch the girls go by.
