These brass heritage plaques around the city commemorate heritage buildings, lost buildings from the past and some proposed buildings that were never built. Sydney Hospital, built in 1816, was colloquially named the Rum Hospital because it was funded by the trade in rum. The central block featured here was demolished in 1876 to build the current Sydney Hospital.
