N1, Canonbury Square, 27

May 2016: The Islington Tribute reports that the plaque has been replaced, 27 May, with one giving the correct date of habitation (1944-7 rather than just 1945).

2017: We returned and took new photos but, as is our practice, we've kept the old plaque (marked 'lost') as a historical record.
