Historical Notes: The tower was designed by architect W C Chatfield as part of the old Bell and Co match factory that was built next to the hospital in 1894. After Bryant and May merged with Bell and Co, and moved to another building, the hospital took over the old factory. (Information from article published in the Evening Post, 1 June 1961)
