The plaque is on number 12 and refers to number 16, the house cut off at the left of our photo, the last house in the terrace. Dates on letters held by Nottingham suggest that Lawrence moved from number 12 to number 16 in September 1911. He lodged here while employed as a teacher at Davidson Road school (no longer exists).
