London's distinctive blue plaques commemorate remarkable men and women who have lived in the capital. This guide describes the careers of nearly 800 individuals; well-known names such as Charles Dickens, Karl Marx, Jimi Hendrix and Florence Nightingale are featured as well as accounts of the antics and achievements of less received figures whose lives have also been commemorated by a blue plaque. Jimi Hendrix, whose flamboyant methods of guitar playing - behind his back, with his teeth - remain strong in public memory, lived next door to a house in which dwelt a very different musician - George Frederick Handel. Listed in alphabetical order and including informative and sometimes irreverant anecdotes about many of the famous, this second edition also includes maps showing the location of plaques in Central London, and illustrations of some of the more remarkable individuals. This edition includes over 60 new entries and a new introduction which includes mention of some of the more distinctive and interesting unofficial plaques.
