Plaque

(lost) Pensions plaque

Erection date: 1988

The East London Record, No 15, 1991, in an article by Harold Finch entitled "Frederick Rogers: Bookbinder and Journalist":
"In 1988, Southwark Council erected a plaque in memory of these pioneers of the pensions campaign, outside what is left of the Browning Settlement (now Herbert Morrison House) in the presence of Neil Kinnock, Jack Jones and other Labour leaders."

This plaque is not visible on the outside of the building so no photo and we've marked it as lost, but it's possible the Robert Browning Settlement have it.

Site: Robert Browning Settlement, Booth and pensions (3 memorials)

SE17, Walworth Road, 195

In 1958 this building opened as Herbert Morrison House, 195, Walworth Road - the Labour Party headquarters until the 1990s.

At some point in the past its address seems to have been 3 Browning Street.

Previously called York Street, in 1937 the street was named for Robert Browning who, in 1812, was baptised in the nonconformist chapel shown on this 1895 map
