The PDSA visit the Island

Early 1930's

My grandfather, Oliver Stevens with Charlie who pulled the bakery cart in the foreground with lady pet owners and their dogs grouped around the P.D.S.A vehicle. Note the contrasting footwear.

These pictures of the PDSA were taken on the Island in the early 1930’s. They are said to be taken at the Point. Can anyone corroborate that, do you remember? If so please comment below.

In the 1950’s the PDSA had a regular clinic in a bungalow in Keegan Place off Chamberlain Avenue, this was still there in the 70’s does anyone know when it closed?

You can read about the PDSA and their work during the 1953 floods here.

If you click on each of the photos below you will find out more.
