Described by Disraeli as “a roost for every bird,” London has been home to figures as varied as Winston Churchill, Virginia Woolf, Mahatma Gandhi, and Jimi Hendrix. Since 1866 the city has commemorated the link between notable figures and the buildings in which they lived and work through a series of blue plaques. Lived in London provides an introduction to the many people and buildings honored through this program that connects people and place, drawing out the human element of the historic environment and helping to save a number of London’s buildings from demolition.

"The book, which is arranged by geographic area, includes contemporary and archival images as well as lovely illustrated maps detailing where you can find the plaques. Equally enjoyable is the text, which is full of interesting tidbits. . . . [The book] makes a terrific reference work, for looking up details about plaques you've seen on walls around London ― or as guidance for those you'd like to seek out on your next trip."―Nathan Lump, The Moment Blog (NYTimes.com)(Nathan Lump New York Times 2009-08-19)
