The place of my birth along with thousands similarly, and did you know, the birthplace of ultra-sound technology? ...yup, look up the index of any pedeatric medical journal and you'll find it listed: Royal Maternity Hospital, Glasgow
or, the Rottenrow
Before I really
start Id just like to point somethin out that I always wondered about as a bairn... the Rotten-Row
??? I could never understand why ud want to give birth in a rotten row of something or other/!??! But fool I was!! Coz Rottenrow is an ancient (gaelic, gealic, gallic???) term for Kings Way
or was it Kings Road
. Theres one in London too.
Anywho, it's been demolished now, for those of you who don't already know, and all that remains is the old entrance portico. Did anyone see the BBc's thingy about it? It showed the complete demolishion and some personal accounts of people who'd gave birth, been born and worked there over the years.
Sad tho it's gone, the whole site has now been turned into a commemorative garden complete with "water-feature" ...until Strathclyde University find something to do with it
My point is... Id like to see a feature on the home page!
Do you have any memories of the place... tell us here!!!

Got any pics of the place... let us know here!!!!
