The photographer's notes state: 'The house. The entrance quadrangle in the summer'. The negative BB71/08702 also shows the same view but was taken five months earlier, in January 1929.
Frognal House was a large country house which was once the seat of the Viscounts Sydney. In 1917 it became the site of the new Queen’s Hospital (later Queen Mary’s Hospital), a centre for pioneering plastic surgery. The house was later used for many years as administrative offices but is now a retirement home.
