Re: 578 Newcastle Road

I was born at 578 in the mid-1940s (at least my birth certificate tells me so):  it was the official registry address for what people usually called the City General Hospital or, as Chrissie says, London Road.  Some confusion is caused by the hospital being on the Stoke/Newcastle-under-Lyme border, and I seem to remember the A34 at that point changes from London Road to Newcastle Road.  I was pre-NHS but was not born in the workhouse!
