Travel Photo of the Day (January 6)

One of the these 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.

  1. 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!

    • TBM says:

      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

  7. Northern Narratives says:

    That’s very interesting. I assume the blue plaque notes a place of history or importance.

  8. 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!!

  10. 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.

Thanks for commenting, I would love to hear from you.
