Remember having to go there a lot for treatment of Athletes Foot. Caught by going to Jarrow baths with the school. |
Between the toe painted with purple liquid ? Iodine ?
There was usually 4 or 5 of us having to go there.
Still remember the nurse telling one lad “Stop wearing those goddam awful boots” in what maybe have been a German accent but was probably Glaswegian.
He always wore a pair of “rubber type boots” with maybe a zip fastening which I associated with the Bin Men. But I could be way off the mark but they where very unusual..
His name escapes me “ Jimmy L” wore glasses I think, bit chubby.
The only other I remember was Jim Sams.
