Plaque: Bob's corner
In memory of Robert Brady (Bob), newspaper vendor for 30 years at this location, known as Bobs corner.
Site: Bob's corner (1 memorial)
NW3, Hampstead High Street, Hampstead Station
Chosen as the featured memorial in May 2005. We know no more about Bob than the plaque provides. This is an example of one type of memorial that we find particularly touching. There is another one nearby (Maggie's Corner, not yet published, on the corner of Hampstead High Street and Willoughby Road) but they are quite rare. Possibly people move away and there comes a time when even the owner of the host building no longer knows who Bob or Maggie was. Being attached to a tube station this plaque might survive longer than most.
