Education And Health

A Memory of Bury

By the 1940s the Grammar School had been rebuilt in Tenterden Street. The building in the photograph became The Wylde Clinic which was the centre for mothers and babies and of course housed the 'dreaded' school dentist. My younger brother went to the Wylde Clinic for 'sunray treatment' where all the children had to wear goggles to protect their eyes.
The Wylde Clinic was still operating in the 1960s for mothers and babies, ante-natal care and school health referrals.
