Site: Florence Nightingale Hospital (2 memorials)

NW8, Lisson Grove, 11 - 19, Capio Nightingale Hospital

Dirty and uncared for, but we prefer the Duchess plaque - just the way they have written the "Qu" of "Queen" endears it to us. The modern plaque has got so carried away in verbiage that metaphors are mixed - one can forge a cliche'ed path but surely one can't weave a legacy. And note that no one takes any responsibility for the modern plaque, while there's a whole committee proud to be named on the 1909 one, and which we now have to research, sigh.
