DE­CEM­BER 2: Protest­ing nurses bring a wet and rainy Peter Street to a stand­still after at­tend­ing a gath­er­ing at Al­bert Hall. The march, which passed the Theatre Royal on the way to the Town Hall, formed part of an on­go­ing protest over salary scales and work­ing con­di­tions.

It was the days be­fore dis­pos­able sy­ringes, heart mon­i­tors and com­put­ers. Bed­pans had to be cleaned and used from pa­tient to pa­tient.
