'The College of Physicians, Warwick Lane, 1868', (1897). View of the Royal College of Physicians in the City of London. The Cutlerian Theatre in Warwick Lane was an anatomy theatre designed by Robert Hooke and rebuilt after the Great Fire of 1666. 'The special point of the college was the octagonal domed entrance-porch, forty feet in diameter, which was a tour de force of the ingenious architect. The interior above the porch was the lecture-room, light, lofty, and open to the roof.' It was demolished in the 1860s. From Old and New London, Volume I, by Walter Thornbury. [Cassell and Company, Limited, London, Paris & Melbourne, 1897]
