Inscription

Britain Vietnam Association
Ho Chi Minh, 1890-1969, founder of modern Vietnam, worked in 1913 at the Carlton Hotel which stood on this site.

Wikipedia questions the veracity of this plaque, while acknowledging that Ho was in London between 1913 and 1919, living in West Ealing and Crouch End.

It also includes specifically listed artwork: the sculptor Inia te Wiata's life sized tribal figures of Maoris."
