Slow Summer | The Ultimate Blue Plaque

One of the most celebrated blue plaques in London is for someone perhaps not everyone has heard of. At 16, Eaton Place, Belgravia is a plaque commemorating William Ewart, MP, the father of the blue plaque system. 🙂

Ewart lived on Eaton Place from 1830 until 1838, and was a notable reformer who, as well as being the first to propose a scheme for commemorating famous homes, was responsible for the Act that introduced public libraries.

I can’t help but think that his plaque is lacking quite a lot of detail …

  1. I did not know that about blue plagues & certainly William deserved something a little fancier & with more detail. I like Slow Summer learning 🙂
