Our picture shows the plaque before erection with Christopher Elsom, Pitch and Mouser.  In 1975 they lived in no 60.  Christopher writes: “No. 60 was initially a single home but at some stage was converted by New River Company into lateral flats with the house next door.  Fenner Brockway was a tad confused when he visited.   Also living in the house at the time was Matt Zimmerman, better known as Tracy in Thunderbirds.   Brockway lived here in a commune back in Fabian times.  We went to a do in the Mayor’s parlour at Islington town hall, met Fenner and he came round to our place and pulled the curtain off the plaque.”  Thank you Christopher.
