As a limited edition, I cannot make the offer open to everyone otherwise,
well you can imagine the financial consequences, I will send over the next
few days an attachment which I hope will prove to you, Bryan and Jan. That
NOT ALL OF THE FORMER HOSPITAL COMPLEX WAS DESTROYED. I'm not absolutely sure
of the former function of this part of the structure BUT I was told during a
telephone call this morning that it had been part of the maternity unit.
Is there no one on this list (I live in Wales) who could pop round to speak
to the current hospital administrators in Y2K? No point doing immediately,
they are all probably busy waiting for the first second millennium birth!!
The only thing that bothers me is that it has the appearance of a chapel, an
appropriate setting for a birth at this time! Even so the windows in
appearance are nothing like chapel windows.
