These two plaques are next door to each other and were unveiled on the same day. We attended the event, and since this street is becoming rather heavy with plaques we've put these two on the same site-pin. The two subjects were both watercolour artists and for two years lived next door to each other. The site photo was taken immediately prior to the unveiling.
