The city of London is dotted with plaques, many of them blue, all commemorating either a famous person who was born, lived, or stayed in that building, or sometimes a significant event that took place, or an earlier use of the site.
This book is a comprehensive gazetteer of all of Londonï¿½s plaques. Using Derek Sumeray's classic book as a basis, this thoroughly revised new edition arranges plaques alphabetically by area, providing a text that is linked to London's geography and, therefore, of greater use to a resident or visitor wanting to explore the famous people and events commemorated in that area.
Illustrated with photographs of many of the plaques and the places, this is the only guide to all the commemorative plaques in Greater London.

Derek Sumeray retired early from a successful business career and took up photography, which led to a scheme to photograph every plaque in London. Since there was no guide to these plaques to help him, he wrote it himself.
John Sheppard read history at Oxford before becoming a documentary film maker. He has forty World in Action films to his credit plus many one-offs. More recently he has devoted himself to writing and to campaigning. He maintains a database of London's buildings currently running to over 10,000 entries.
