One of the things I love about London is that you always have to pay attention. This home may not look like much, but see the blue plaque. Mary Wollstonecraft lived here. She was a teacher, writer, advocate for women’s rights, and the mother of Mary Shelley, who wrote Frankenstein.
TB Markinson is an American who's recently returned to the US after a seven-year stint in the UK and Ireland. When she isn't writing, she's traveling the world, watching sports on the telly, visiting pubs in New England, or reading. Not necessarily in that order.
Her novels have hit Amazon bestseller lists for lesbian fiction and lesbian romance.
She cohosts the Lesbians Who Write Podcast (lesbianswhowrite.com) with Clare Lydon. TB also runs I Heart Lesfic (iheartlesfic.com), a place for authors and fans of lesfic to come together to celebrate lesbian fiction.
That was one of my favourite parts of London when I was there – seeing all the homes of favourite people!
Very interesting! I imagine you would practically stumble over historic sights in London. Is the blue plaque used to indicate historical buildings?
I always enjoy looking at your photographs!
Thanks Anita. The plaques indicate there famous people once lived. It includes all types of people from sports stars, politicians, scientists, writers, actors, and more.
That’s a great way to keep history alive. Looks like the pigeons found a home, as well.
Taken on my walk by any chance? 🙂
Cool shot! I feel smarter already!
Awesome, I love these old historic places
That’s very interesting. I assume the blue plaque notes a place of history or importance.
Yes–they usually indicate where famous people once resided.
I love all the pigeons sitting on the roof sunning themselves!
So interesting!! You cannot judge a book by it’s cover 🙂
2 great ladies!!
That is so cool I love old houses with a story. The house I grew up in had an amazing story. It was very haunted!
Happy New Year and good luck with your quest. I am impressed so far and enjoy your information and photos so much. You have to keep your eyes open as there is so much above eye-line level usually that most people just do not see. You tend to find these interesting things. Love it.
Thanks Jane. I can’t take all of the credit since I was on a tour. I do enjoy looking for the plaques though–if I don’t know the name, I look it up when I get home.
