This place could do with a re-birth

This tatty looking building (admittedly made worse by the fact that it was photographed through the windscreen on a wet and miserable day recently) is where a huge number of Port Elizabethans (including our son) were born... it is the old maternity wing of the Provincial Hospital. Definitely in need of some tlc, but given the abysmal state of the Health Department in this province, I imagine it is low on the list of priorities.


  1. Is Sandford actually still in use?? Sad to see the state it's in (and has been in for a number of years) as it's where my husband and I were both born.

  2. to be honest, I don't know if it is still being used... will ask around!

  3. Hello, I did my midwifery training in Sanford in 1978 and it looks exactly the same 30 years later (Pity we had lovely times) Lanie (Kok) Gouws
