An aerial view of the Guys Hospital site from around 1960/1961? It's clear the amount of bomb damage that was still to be developed but the new Guys surgical block was nearing completion.

Having been born in Guy's Hospital in 1942, I can remember walking from Pages Walk to Guy's and getting a free cup of OXO or BOVRIL, can't remember which, I must have been about six or seven can anyone else recall doing that? Hospital pictures taken in 1948.
