Imperial War Museum from Geraldine Mary Harmsworth Park
The Imperial War Museum is to be found in Geraldine Mary Harmsworth Park. What is now the Imperial War Museum was built in the early 19th century as the Bethlem Royal Hospital, also known as Bedlam. The hospital moved to Monks Orchard at Beckenham in 1930 (see LinkExternal link ) and the Imperial War Museum took over the building, opening to the public here in 1936. Geraldine Mary Harmsworth Park opened in 1934. The land was gifted to the "splendid struggling mothers of Southwark" by Viscount Rothermere in memory of his mother. The memorial just beyond the path and to the left of the lamp post was unveiled in 1999 and is to Soviet lives lost in the Second World War - see LinkExternal link
