Eastleigh Recreation Ground – Pregnancy Test 1959

A Memory of Eastleigh.

I loved to play on the swings, roundabouts and giant slide at Eastleigh recreation ground.
The long polished brass slide was fun to try to walk up, slide down roll things down or pee down.

I overheard a friend of mums who was expecting a baby – she said
“It is wonderful now they can tell if you are pregnant by just peeing on a slide”.

This amazed me that our humble recreation ground had such a magical slide! (This is a true tale!)

With thanks to vaughan.clark48 for this memory of Eastleigh

I remember playing on a large mound of earth over the rec and there was a barrage balloon anchored over head about 1943
