School of Medicine – for Women

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Signs.”

This week, publish an image of a sign — from the signs you encounter on the street to more personal, less obvious signs that hold meaning for you.

I often walk past this sign. I am never quite sure what to feel about it. Dismay that “for many years, the Royal Free Hospital was the only hospital in London to offer medical services to women.” (Source: Royal Free Hospital). Or something more positive, given how far we have come.

Either way, the sign itself is beautifully made, and I am pleased that it has been retained and kept in such good condition. The building itself, is still involved in health care, and now houses the Hunter Street Health Centre & the University College London (UCL) Institute of Neurology.
