Just as I remembered it mike, nice picture.
Hi Ron, I remember The Orthopedic Hospital on Broad Street from my childhood.i had polio at the age of 8 months 1n 1950. i used to attend the royal orthopedic clinic in broad st between 1960 to 1990
i used to have my boots adapted to fit a caliper in the metal dept and also visited my surgeon as an outpatient his name was mr mhm harrison. he porformed several operations on me between 1960 to 1967 at the woodlands royal orthopedic hospital bristol rd nr selly oak, and i also went in to the forelands for two weeks while they decorated wards 4/5 during one of my woodlands stays. the forlands is now an housing estate. the broad st hospital is now old orleans this building was used for chiropody and i think physio. the woodlands is still operating as an orthopedic hospital
Hi. That is a No 5 bus. It used to travel from the terminus at the bottom of Selsey Road/ Portland Road to Perry Common, Court Lane. Then it came back as the Number 7. There was also a No 6 bus that began its route at Willow Avenue/ Sandon Road and then went in the same direction once the 2 buses joined on the Hagley Road. The No 9 still survives to this day.That was my bus stopping outside the hospital!! Either the No. 9 Quinton or the No. 7 Portland Road.
