The London dwelling of pioneering nurse and Crimean war heroine Mary Seacole has been commemorated with a blue plaque.
Ms Seacole lived at 14 Soho Square for a brief period in the 1850s. It is her only known surviving residence in the capital. Three other London addresses at which Ms Seacole lived – 3 Cambridge Street, 157 George Street and 1 Tavistock Street – have since been demolished.
The English Heritage plaque was unveiled last week by Professor Elizabeth Anionwu, vice chairperson of the Mary Seacole Memorial Statue Appeal, pictured right with culture minister Margaret Hodge.
