The founding of St Thomas's

St Thomas's foundation stone laying-ceremony invitationSt Thomas's foundation stone laying-ceremony invitationThis lovely example of ephemera from the collections of King's College London is an invitation to attend the ceremonial foundation stone-laying by Queen Victoria in 1868 for the new St. Thomas’s Hospital.

It has no name filled in the designated place, so it looks to have been kept as a pristine example.
