Londoners and visitors to the capital will be familiar with the numerous plaques, many of them blue, affixed to buildings in the city. Each plaque commemorates either a famous person who was born, lived or stayed in that building or, sometimes, a significant event that took place there, or an earlier use of the site. This book catalogues over 1,800 plaques, erected by a wide range of organisations and individuals. Each entry contains the location of the plaque and a short biography of the named person, or an explanation of the commemorated event. They are arranged alphabetically within geographical area for easy reference, and there is a useful index that lists the people and places within these sections. Based on the classic Shire book by Derek Sumeray, this new version has been thoroughly revised, expanded and re-ordered by John Sheppard, and is the only book to cover all of the plaques in the London and Greater London area. Overflowing with trivia-packed entries, this is the perfect companion for all lovers of London.
