Lord Lister's house in Park Crescent
Lord Lister's house in Park Crescent
Number 12 Park Crescent was the home of Lord (Joseph) Lister from 1877, when he became Professor of Surgery at King's College Hospital, for the next 33 years. His main claim to fame is as the pioneer of asepsis. This commemorative plaque was removed after the house was damaged in the war and was replaced here in 1966.
