The Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham was built, along with the adjoining medical School, next to the University of Birmingham in the 1930’s. It was designed to be at the leading edge of healthcare and marked a new departure for medicine in Birmingham, linking hospital and academic medicine on a single site. It was opened on 31st December, 1938. Stanley Anderson’s plate records this impressive building in its rural setting at the time when its construction had just been completed.

On cream wove paper with full margins and deckle edge. Very good original condition.
