The Bessemer plaque is on the pillar to the right, the Baxter plaque is on the wall to the left.

A plaque was erected on the original house, number 11, in 1928. This was demolished in 1967 to make way for the City University but the front door can still be seen in one of Baxter's colour prints "Morning Call", captured here.
