Alight at Euston for the abandoned National Temperance Hospital (London Temperance Hospital before 1939).
.
Opened in 1873 by the National Temperance League, it was managed by a board of 12 teetotallers with a mandate to discourage the use of alcohol.
.
In 1931, London-born Chicago magnate, and former personal secretary to Thomas Edison, Samuel Insull donated $160,000 to build a new extension, the "Insull Memorial wing".
.
Though organisations such as the National Institute for Medical Research have in recent years attempted to make use of the empty space, the buildings may be demolished to make way for the proposed HS2 (High Speed 2) railway.
