THE BASEMENT FLATS

There were two doors in the basement entrance and the corridor was divided to create the two flats.

All flats were obviously unfit for habitation, were closed with the consequent loss of rent to Mrs Ridley and this may have prompted her decision to sell enabling us to bring the building up to NHS standards. Without this we would have had to find suitable accommodation elsewhere.

THE REDEVELOPMENT OF 93 ST GEORGES ROAD 2
THE ANNEX FLAT

This flat had been occupied for many years, certainly before my arrival in 1972, by a single lady teacher and it was necessary to give her notice so that we could proceed with the development. Following her departure we moved, as a temporary measure, the Health Visitors in so that Felicity Sloan could have a surgery of her own

This arrangement must have been temporary, as will be seen in later photos the flat was gutted at the same time as the basement and the Health Visitors must have moved back into a part of their old rooms.
