Description

The photographer's notes state: 'The rose garden, looking S.west. Glimpse of the S.east part of the house. Early morning'.

Frognal House is 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.
