Stanmore: RNOH emblem on gates
This is on the main gate to the hospital, and shows us that it was for "the cure of crippled children" reminding us that the term "orthopeadics" originally referred specifically to children's bones ("ortho" = bones, "paed" = children [as in paediatrics]); the term now refers to bones of all ages!

It is at the TQ1793 : Stanmore: Royal National Orthopædic Hospital entrance.
