HH Bridgman's St Pancras Workhouse

Back elevation of HH Bridgman's St Pancras Workhouse, now part of St Pancras Hospital.

It fulfills all one's imaginative conception of a Victorian workhouse - gloomy, overpowering, forbidding.

When it first became an NHS hospital many elderly people in the borough were afraid to go there as they thought they were being put in the workhouse.
