Windeyer, history of a building

The Windeyer building (now demolished) in Fitztrovia's Cleveland Street, was built as the Middlesex Hospital Medical School in 1959, but when the School was amalgamated with University College in 1987, the building was mainly used for biomedical research. The twenty people featured in this commemorative booklet contributed personal stories and images encompassing the Windeyer's scientific and social history over the half century of its existence.

In addition to the formal history of the building there emerged a number of fascinating tales about the area including the fact that Bob Dylan performed his first London gig at the 'King and Queen' public house (corner of Cleveland and Foley Streets) in December 1962, a photograph of which appears in the booklet.
