St Thomas's Hospital, Lambeth Palace Road (1)
On the left is the white-tiled 1963 block by Yorke Rosenberg & Mardall whose original plan was to build two such blocks. Further away are the three surviving pavilions (each containing three wards, an idea derived from Florence Nightingale) of Henry Currey's innovative design of 1868-71. There were originally seven, but the remainder were either destroyed during the Second World War or pulled down later as part of the proposed rebuilding. The far tower belongs, I think, to the medical school.
The photo is taken from Westminster Bridge, one of whose cast-iron Gothic lamp standards is in shot.
