George Bernard Shaw Memorial Plaque, Fitzroy Square, London (Public Domain Photograph)

I was cycling through Fitzroy Square in London which is just north of SOHO and near the Post Office Tower when I spotted a VERY literary house.

This is the commemorative plaque for George Bernard Shaw, who lived in the house from 1887 to 1898.

Virginia Woolf also lived in the house (not at the same time) – her GLC blue plaque will be posted next and I’ll also post a photo of the house in Fitzroy Square itself.

The text on George Bernard Shaw’s plaque reads “From the coffers of his genius he enriched the world”.

George Bernard Shaw (26 July 1856–2 November 1950) was a world-renowned Irish author. He lived and worked in London and authored more than sixty plays, many of which are still performed on stage today.

I place this Carbuncle’s Blog photograph of a George Bernard Shaw commemorative plaque, seen in Fitzroy Square, London in the public domain, as far as I am able, and allow any use including commercial – check the terms of use here.

    I meant to say “if so” could you please help me.

    This guy called Mark Bellinghaus is calling me in New Zealand accusing me of being Delicious Carbuncle on Wikipedia and threatening to sue me and now he is defaming me and my husband on the internet.
