Rachel Davies (nee Morgan) 1951-53 (18 months)
Rachel having a bed bath
Staff nurse Wilkes.....remember those white tin washing bowls which were always badly chipped?
Rachel from Pontadawe has sent in a fascinating collection of photographs from her time in Craig-y-nos as a young woman in the Annexe .
She was there for 18 months.
The first thing that strikes me about the photos is that they have pictures on the walls!
I note she also had a radio with headphones.
We had nothing like that in Ward 2.
In fact we had nothing.
For the regime in each ward varied according to the Ward Sister in charge.
And life in the Annexe looked relaxed, cheerful and friendly.
And the windows are closed!
