You probably know by now but I think 69 and 69a Buckingham Street, Aylesbury was the site of the "Mid Bucks Shelter and Maternity Home". It may also have been called Putnam House. It was also the address from the Mid Bucks moral Welfare Association in 1951. I think that basically it was a home for unmarried mothers and was particularly full during the Second World War. The person who I know was sent there in 1940 said that it was Dickensian! I was given this information by Samantha Baxter from the Buckinghamshire CC Archives
