Dear dodyskin: a couple of the words you used interest me. When I was a boy,
"normal school" was the name for what was later called a "Teachers' College"
that is now a State University in Bridgewater, Massachusetts.
Please tell us what your "normal school" was.
Forgive me for being nosy, but I can't help being curious as to what you
meant by your "hospital school".

I have seen many hospitals, and worked in quite a few. but never before heard of
a hospital school. There are teaching hospitals for doctors, and hospitals that have
nursing schools, but I never knew of one that had a separate building for a school.
One more Brit custom new to me.
