Teenagers - 1956
Many girls who were teenagers on the balcony during the mid 1950s look back on this part of their lives with fond nostalgia.
Thanks to the introduction of drugs TB was no longer the killer disease and the atmosphere on the balcony was more relaxed ,unlike the stricter regime imposed in the wards.
Here a group of girls are seen in the grounds with a Shetland pony.
Maybe Christine Perry ( nee Bennett) can tell us a little bit more about the photo. It is one from her vast collection.
