Inscription

Leigh Hunt, poet & essayist, lived here 1853 - 1859.

This plaque is in the same style as one for Marcus Garvey, both located in the Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham. Their creators are not indicated, and curiously we have found another group of plaques with their own distinctive style, also anonymously erected, and in the same borough.
