The Children's Hospital

By Bob Herrick

This wonderful photograph was taken a very long time ago as you can see.  The photographer, Bob Herrick, was working at the time for the Brighton and Hove Herald.  The little boy was snapped in a ward of the Royal Alexandra Children's Hospital on Christmas morning.  Do you remember when children were happy with simple toy trains like the one this happy little chap is holding?  Well, he will probably have children of his own by now, maybe even grandchildren.  Do you know who he is?  Please let us know if you have any ideas - email:
