Explore the early 19th century history of human dissection and the trade in dead bodies through dramatic evidence unearthed at the Royal London Hospital.
The connection that London has with Henry Moore's sculputre, Draped Seated Woman (Old Flo), is explored in this online exhibtion.
Bought by London City Council and placed at a new housing estate called the Stifford Estate in Stepney in 1963, the sculpture epitomised the post war desire to improve the lives of Londoners by new housing and improved living standards. Its story is one of idealism, resilience and the marking of social change in London.
