Does it say 'The Free Hospital' ???

Further down I think it says something about government?

If you look on Google earth the window frame looks original on the Otway side and shop style ie down to a couple of feet off the ground, on the Hermann side there is a single private entrance door and window

Thats a good point, the wall against Otway Terrace has been rebuilt, so may have been a shop window!

Ok, I just checked, the one on the Corner of Cromwell/Ottway is the Portland Vase and that is still there (or was a year or two ago!), so I guess that must be a former shop.

Is that Herman Terrace or Cromwell Terrace?  The 1896 OS Map (the first that shows those streets) shows a pub on the corner of Cromwell Terrace/Ottway Street, but not Herman Terrace. If it was not a pub it must have been a shop.

On the corner of Herman Terrace and Otway Terrace is this building.  It looks very pub like - or was it always a residence?



I can't quite make out the writing on it either...   The ???????? Hospital ??????.........
