Plaque: William Blake - W1, S. Molton St.
The Corporation of the City of London
William Blake, poet and painter, lived here. Born 1757, died 1827.
Initially we were puzzled why the Corporation of the City of London would erect a plaque so far to the west of its patch, but our colleague, Alan Patient, found out. This area used to be the Conduit Mead(e) Estate which was owned and managed by the Corporation.
