Wood Green Cottage Hospital

History

 

No photo avalable The redevelopment of central London that took place towards the end of the 19th century caused a massive displacement of working class Londoners out into the suburbs, which expanded rapidly to accommodate them. The population of Wood Green was 30,000 when Passmore Edwards agreed to provide a cottage hospital similar that he had funded at Willesden.
The foundation stone was laid in August 1894 and the completed hospital opened by Mrs. Passmore Edwards in June 1895.
