Where to find it
About this work
King's College Hospital, London, was established in the St Clement Dane workhouse building, in Portugal Street, off Kingsway. In 1909 it started to build a new building in Denmark Hill, south London, to which it moved in 1913. The peddler is a typical John Hassall figure in quasi-Tudor dress: he advertises pageants, fireworks, cricket, gipsies, clowns, and other amusements
