Jewish Maternity Hospital, London

14 December 2011

An endangered historic workhome. See here for an article about a campaign being run by historian Tom Ridge to prevent its demolition.

"The ground floor contained three maternity wards, an operating theatre and three annexes, one of which contained the four free beds and two others with a room each for private patients.  The colour scheme was all white - walls, fittings and beds.  The kitchen and domestic offices were situated on the first floor, as were the superintendent's and nurses' bedrooms (painted pastel green with white fitted furniture) and living rooms.  There was also a small isolation ward, with bath and attendance rooms.  The Home had 12 beds."
