Wednesday 20th May 1846

“The first stone of the north wing of the University College Hospital, Gower Street, was laid by Lord Brougham, President of the Institution. The expense of completing the edifice which has been just commenced is estimated at £4,000. Shop opened next door to top of gateway at Wharf, in the business of cheesemonger and butterman, this day. Reading Watt’s Buildings finished at last, having been in operation upwards two years. Granny Shepard slept at her new lodging in Richmonds Buildings first time.”
