Plaque

Cecil Hepworth - SE13

Inscription

Commemorating the Centenary of Cinema 1996
Cecil M. Hepworth, British film producer, born here 19th March 1874
In association with the British Film Institute

Site: Cecil Hepworth - SE13 (1 memorial)

SE13, Somerset Gardens, 17

We originally thought this plaque was in the wrong street since Hepworth was, in all reputable sources, born in Beaufort Gardens but Philip Openshaw kindly sorted us out: that was the original name of this delightful 1860-2 close, designed by local architect, Alfred Cross.
