WC1, Tavistock Place, 32 and 36

Jerome on the right at number 32. Lenin on the left (appropriately) at 36. Debbie Radcliffe and Richard Ekins are two of the people involved in researching and erecting this plaque. Richard writes "... it took really serious research to pin point the location. Another example of there being two addresses in the same street which confused everyone." For anyone interested in further reading he suggests the 2017 book by John Llewelllyn, Three Men Went to Row."
