So where was Tackberry Hill, McCreary’s Creek and Paradise Alley?
Our graduation day from Oshawa General Hospital School of Nursing…last of the three year nursing program from this hospital in 1971. Nursing then became part of the Durham College curriculum as in other community colleges/universities.
A dozen red roses was presented to each Nursing graduate from Samuel McLaughlin who owned the estate next to the hospital. He started the McLaughlin Car Co. in 1907 which later evolved into General Motors of Canada ltd. He had given roses to the graduates for many, many years and was the primary benefactor of the hospital.
Group graduation photos were taken on the steps of his beautiful estate…he had made our day very special through his generosity.
