Plaque: Boulton & Park
Erection date: 10/7/2013
Ernest Boulton, 1847 - 1904, Frederick Park, 1846 - 1881, 'Stella & Fanny', Victorian cross-dressers, lodged at 13 Wakefield Street on this site, 1868 - 1870.
These streets become almost impassible during London Fashion week when the Handel Street TA building is used as a venue. 2018, the FT reported that designer Erdem Moralioglu noticed this plaque and the cross-dressing story inspired his SS19 collection.
