In the waiting room
After chatting with some people regarding the Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital, we got onto the discussion of who remembered the rocking horse that was in the outpatients waiting room? I spent a lot of my childhood in and out of the Alex during the 1970s and spent a lot of time on that rocking horse!
Saved for posterity?
After a bit of searching someone told me it was still around but now at the Tarner Centre in Morley Street. So I went along today to see it, and there it was, just as I remembered it, but much smaller. As it’s so fondly remembered I wonder if really it should be in the museum before it gets stuffed away in some cupboard somewhere because it’s no longer ‘safe’ for children to play on. Either that, or it should have pride of place at the new Alex building.
