LGI Blue Plaque.
I should have posted this along with the previous posts about the Leeds General Infirmary (LGI) but I have been rather distracted adding keywords to my previously taken photographs.
I have been slowly adding to the posts about the blue plaques around the city of Leeds. I had forgotten this one on a large stone post outside the hospital.
This blue plaque at the LGI reads..
The general infirmary moved here from Infirmary Street in 1869.
The building, designed by George Gilbert Scott, incorporated ideas
from Florence Nightingale.
The plan placed it in the foremost rank of European hospitals.
I may well be wrong but I find it a little odd this last line. We may be Europeans now but I doubt the Victorian city fathers were much interested in what was happening in Warsaw, Leipzig or Gothenburg.
Back to the keywords… When I started my photography and also this blog I had no idea that anyone might one day want to use one of my pictures. So now I am going backwards adding keywords etc into the image files.
Another consequence of my ongoing Leeds and Yorkshire photography is my new project website the Yorkshire Picture Library.
