I was born at the General Lying In Hospital. It was a maternity hospital that, when it closed down, became part of the nearby St Thomas Hospital. (Anna)

To shed a little light on this curiosity, "Lying-In" was a Victorian euthamism for giving birth- it was probably a maternity hospital. (Iain Watson)
