History around every corner

In London you can look almost anywhere and find some history that makes you want to delve further. Take, for example, “The Royal Waterloo Hospital for Children and Women” (supported by voluntary contributions) which was built in 1903-04 for £45,000 (or £4,000,000 after allowing for inflation) and remained in use as a hospital until 1976. Now the Lombardic Renaissance-style building, which features a Doulton-ware porch from the local ceramic manufactory and a three-tiered terracotta loggia, is Grade II listed by the English Heritage.
