    Hi,
    This is my first post,
    Info taken from a previous report;
    The Royal Alexandra Hospital was built in 1881 but this was the not the first children's hospital. The first children's hospital was in Western Road in 1868, just a private house that had two or three beds in it. They then bought a old schoolhouse. The schoolhouse became too small so they knocked it down and in 1881 actually built the childrens hospital on Dyke Rd. The doctor who was behind a lot of the development was Dr Taaffe. Dr Taaffe wrote to their Royal Highnesses, the Prince and Princess of Wales, to come and officially open the Royal Alexandra Hospital, which they did on 21st July, 1881. The hospital finally closed in 2007.
