Father of Laryngology, Sir Morrell Mackenzie was born here.

Location: 742 High Road, Leystonstone, E11 3AW

Description: Sir Morrell Mackenzie (1837-1892) was an English laryngologist from a Scottish family and the royal physician to the English and German royal families, and was born here July 7th 1837.

He is best known for his controversial treatment of Frederick III of Germany, in which a silver tube was inserted down the king's throat which rendered him mute, unable to communicate except by writing.

He was the founder of the first hospital devoted to diseases of the throat, and is widely considered the father of laryngology in Britain.

The house was erected by LUDRA in 1909.
