Rattray Grove

Old and New Housing

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.

About a century later, it was converted to housing, and is now surrounded by new housing. 

This view looks to the west along Rattray Grove, with some of the new housing on both sides of the road, and the old wards of the City Hospital in red sandstone,  now converted to housing, on the right.
