Robroyston Hospital was built as a municipal smallpox and tuberculosis hospital and opened in 1918. It was temporarily used as a military hospital in 1918-1919. By 1925 450 beds at Robroyston were devoted to tuberculosis patients, almost half of Glasgow’s total complement. In 1945 a maternity unit was added. In 1948 Robroyston joined the National Health Service under the Board of Management for Glasgow Northern Hospitals. In 1974 it was placed in the Northern District of the Greater Glasgow Health Board. In 1977 Robroyston was closed.
Here's a couple Heather, taken in 1922, just a few years after the hospital opened -- as you can see from the first photograph, everything looks very neat and tidy. I only ever visited the hospital after it closed, when large parts of the buildings were still present, but in a bad state naturally. I remember playing in the soon-to-be-demolished hospital buildings and grounds -- climbing down into the underground tunnels where we would play 'hide-and-seek', the most terrifying place I ever played the game and it must be said a genuinely dangerous activity as there were still large amounts of discarded medical equipment!
On a more productive note, I also made some extra pocket money by some small-scale scavenging of metals items which wee later sold to a scrapyard!
