The building of Parsonage Street Clinic was commenced on July 27th 1923 . It was originally built as a Childrens Welfare Clinic and was opened by The Rev.Henry Enfield Dowson on the 6th May 1924.
Generations of children came to this clinic to be weighed ,have injections for childhood diseases or simply brought by their mothers for advice on their welfare.
How many of you readers remember having a sugar lump with medication for polio on it? A spoonful of sugar definitely DID make the medicine go down!

As it looks today as Hyde Physiotherapy Centre..
I asked at the clinic today and was told that it had been a Physiotherapy Clinic for around 40 years as far as she remembered! How time flies!
