(lost) J. M. W. Turner - W1 - lost plaque

We know no more about this plaque than what Ornamental Passions discovered: it was on an older building on this site and lost in 1937 when that building was replaced. Last year we asked the Estate for sight of the photographs but we have had no response.

Site: J. M. W. Turner - W1 (2 memorials)

W1, Queen Anne Street, 23

This building was purpose-built as offices for The Howard de Walden Estate in 1937 by the architects Messrs Joseph. Ornamental Passions has researched this plaque and discovered that the building "replaced an older Estate office building on the same site and as photographs of the earlier building show an older plaque commemorating JMW Turner on its facade it seems likely that the new one would have been made soon after the opening of this new office."
