Florence Melian Stawell, an Australian who attended Newnham College, Cambridge University, and rubbed shoulders with Bloomsbury, “worked tirelessly” at the Endell Street clinic during the Great War—a facility that was set up and run entirely by women. Reportedly it was so effective that even those who publicly doubted its utility came to praise it.

> The hospital was set up in a former workhouse, “a forbidding five storey hulk of four blocks ranged round a dingy courtyard. The only entrance was a narrow lane off the upper end of Endell Street squeezed between a public wash house and a church. Emerging from this dark tunnel... the courtyard was divided by iron railings into sections, much like animal pens, where the workhouse inmates had until recently exercised.” (p. 98)
