The article presents information on the building of the Paddington Green Children's Hospital which was founded in 1883 in England. The first building was demolished after a few years and was replaced in 1895 with a better structure with Flemish gables and terracotta. It was designed by H. Percy Adams. A sculpture over the hospital entrance was created by SW Elmes and Son. It shows a woman and three children. The sculpture remains even after the building was converted into flats.
