This Hospital was founded in 1859 as The National Hospital for the Paralysed and Epileptic.  It opened at 24 Queen Square in 1860, and expanded into neighbouring properties. The Duke of Albany plaque can just be seen in the gap between the vehicles.  His daughter's, Princess Alice's plaque is in the foreground on the 1937 extension.  This also has two interesting sculptural reliefs - well covered at Ornamental Passions.
