Medium: Photographic print
"Emanuel Hospital, in James Street, Buckingham Gate, the most picturesque of the London almshouses, is also known as Lady Dacre's Almshouses, the Hospital having been founded by the will of Anne, Lady Dacre, in 1601. The Hospital is under the management of the Corporation of London. It is understood that a scheme in preparation for dealing with the Hospital, involves the destruction of the existing buildings."
