Littlejohn Road

City Hospital

The City Hospital was built as an isolation hospital in 1896 to 1903.  It was constructed from red sandstone. 

The hospital was built at Greenbank Drive, to the south of Morningside.  It was well away from other houses, when built.

City Hospital Wards  -   now converted to housing

About a century later, it was converted to housing, and is now surrounded by new housing.  The hospital wards lie to the north of the new road, Rattray Grove.
