Robert Browning - SE14

Inscription

Robert Browning, 1812 - 1889, poet, lived in a cottage near this site, 1841 - 1846.

The cottage was 'Telegraph Cottage' which Browning described as "resembling a goose pie' but we can find no image. It was named for the telegraph station on what is now Telegraph Hill, a few streets to the south.
