Attached are two photographs of the Robson maternity home. This is my mother, Ellen Gardener (Nel) who worked at the Robson for a number of years until it closed and she moved up to the then new North Tees hospital. in those days women stayed in the hospital for I think 10 or 14 days and the nurse always carried the baby out of the home and into the care of parents. The second picture, is my cousin Millie Hunt with another family. My mam is now 91, sadly my cousin Millie died a number of years ago.
