Re: “Where was St. James Infirmary ?

The St. James Parish workhouse in Poland St., London had a much-used infirmary which is probably the one in the song. The workhouse infirmary was in operation 1725-1913, the period of the song. (The leper-hospital closed centuries before). Poland St. is on the fringes of Soho, the infirmary would have a lot of hard luck cases.
