LONDON, Ont.London Health Sciences Centre (LHSC) is pleased to support the release of a new book entitled So Long South Street – A Photographic History of Victoria Hospital by Ryan Craven with photos by Matthew Trueman.

This book offers the opportunity for Londoners to reminisce and pay tribute to the legacy of care that has been built at LHSC – a legacy that began at the former South Street Hospital.
