Cot plaque from Great Ormond Street Hospital for Sick Children, 1900-1904, the Gladys Dean Paul cot, London, England

Cot sponsoring was a popular way for people to give financial support to a hospital such as Great Ormond Hospital for Sick Children, which relied solely on charity donations. This plaque was raised in honour of Gladys Dean Paul to acknowledge her gift. It is shown here with two other cot plaques (1986-1444 and 1986-1445).
