Plaque: Tommy Steele
Tommy Steele OBE, entertainer, born Bermondsey, 17th December 1936.
London Borough of Southwark
Voted by the People
Site: Tommy Steele (1 memorial)
SE16, George Row, Nickleby House
We wish the plaque explained Steele's connection with this site / building. We've read that the new Hicks House on the Frean Street/Thurland Road block was named for Steele (ne Hicks) but that is a few streets away, the other side of Jamaica Road. The Scotsman says "Bermondsey's Frean Street, where Steele and his three younger siblings grew up happy in hard times...". and Last fm has him born in Mason Street, SE17, not nearby at all.
