Unveiled on the same day as the Nissel plaque.
We learnt something typing this plaque - the correct spelling of "ophthalmologist". The misspelling "opthalmologist" is so common that it is accepted by most websites, but our hard copy Chambers (2000) doesn't recognise it. Not sure we feel that much richer for the knowledge.
