The sign on the wall says

SOUTHEND ON SEA GENERAL HOSPITAL A D 1932
The sign on the wall says "SOUTHEND ON SEA GENERAL HOSPITAL A D 1932". I have seen this many times, this sign. This is above the old main entrance to Southend Univeristy Hospital. It is up high, but it is there, plainly visible.

This hospital predates the foundation of the National Health Service, and his been an integral part of the provision since that shining achievement first saw light of day in 1948.
