The Infant's Hospital



This cameo (the proper term for a plaque like this - if it was recessed it would be intaglio) is one of a few left from the Infant's Hospital in Pimlico. With roots going back to the 18th century, it pioneered research on malnutrition in children. Now, it's a block of flats.

Will you be showing us the others, unless they are all the same?

Learned some vocabulary today! And it's the first I hear of a old hospital becoming a set of flats. Amazing what time does to places...

Kim - thanks for that! I don't get it out often enough these days (for which some people are profoundly thankful)

Gail's man - the other photos are fairly drab - there's not a lot else to see

Natalie - In London EVERYTHING is turning into flats. Just remember, in London NEVER drop a matchbox.
