about this item

The essential guide to the blue plaques of London with over 65 new entries

London’s distinctive Blue Plaques commemorate the remarkable men and women who have lived in the capital. Its biographical portraits, listed in alphabetical order, provide informative and sometimes irreverent anecdotes about many of the famous and some not-so-famous lives. The Guide describes the careers of more than 700 individuals; well-known names such as Charles Dickens, Karl Marx, Jimi Hendrix, and Florence Nightingale are featured as well as fascinating accounts of the antics and achievements of less familiar figures whose lives have also been commemorated by a Blue Plaque. The text includes maps showing the location of plaques in Central London, indexes by area and profession, and illustrations of some of the most remarkable individuals.
