Pre-publication review: Mrs T, St Helens
A brilliant and well researched local history book and it was a privilege to read before publication. The aural history from both the retired and current staff gives a real insight to their time working at the hospital. The wonderful photographs of the old wards make it an exceptional book and certainly compliments the Whiston Workhouse book.
