W1, Wardour Street, St Anne's Soho

In our photo the Williams plaque can be seen low on the left-facing wall.  The King of Corsica plaque is on the same wall, to the right.  The free-standing drinking fountain is on a shallow platform between the Williams plaque and the two people seated on the steps.  The war memorial is on the right-facing wall.
