The Old Vicarage Nursery / Babies' Hostel, Kingsbury, Middlesex

The Old Vicarage Nursery (or 'Babies Hostel' as it appears on a map of the period), at 124 Kingsbury Road, Kingsbury, was operated by the Waifs and Strays Society from about 1933 to 1937. It accommodated 12 babies. The establishment may have been connected with the Home of St Peter and St Paul at Balham.

The premises were later used by Barnardo's as a Home for Working Girls. The building no longer exists.
