Inscription

John Kennedy, president United States of America, 1961 - 1963, lived here.

The building used to be the residence for the United States Ambassador to the Court of St James's (i.e. Britain) a post held, 1938 - 1940, by Joe Kennedy, Sr, JFK's father. While there Joe supported appeasement to the extent that he was recalled for fear of his Nazi sympathies. JFK was aged 21 - 23 and spent much of the time touring Europe but he certainly spent some time here with his father.
