The strand Union Workhouse / Cleveland Street work house , is now known to be associated with Charles Dickens and was used as the subject in Oliver Twist. Dickens who lived in Cleveland Street also makes reference to one William Sykes who was also resident in the area. The building in part has been saved by a preservation order but some of the rear is still much under threat from the property developers. This model was built as a charitable donation to the London Cockney Museum and the Preservation Group.
The Model is in O Gauge 7mm to foot. And is shown as it might have been in the early 1920s when it was in fact the Middlesex County Hospital
