    This hospital, North-Eastern Hospital and Dispensary as it was originally known, was opened in 1870. In 1893 the building was expanded and new wards were added and in 1942 it joined with the Princess Elizabeth of York Hospital for Children, Shadwell to become The Queen Elizabeth Hospital for Children.

    In 1948, the hospital became part of the newly created NHS. In 1998 it closed it's doors and services were relocated to The Royal London Hospital.

    The pathology lab was one of the country's most important for the investigation of child diseases.

    This was an interesting little place, especially the bizarre room I stumbled upon which had a beautiful wooden fireplace...and a stuffed fox with a rose above it. Very odd. The hopsital stil has a few nice original features :)

    The dead fox gave me quite a shock when I walked in the room!
