#plaque366 Sir Francis Galton

A London commemorative plaque for every day in 2016. 

The plaques are selected from all walks of life, and all points of the London compass – and I'm taking requests too!

DROP ME A LINE or leave a comment below if you'd like to nominate a plaque for inclusion in the series








You have got to love the opening line to Francis Galton's Wikipedia entry…

"English Victorian statistician, progressive, polymath, sociologist, psychologist, anthropologist, eugenicist, tropical explorer, geographer, inventor, meteorologist, proto-geneticist, and psychometrician."


Phew!

It goes on to state:

"He was knighted in 1909."

I should jolly well think so too!



The plaque can be found at 42 Rutland Place SW7…










A London Walk costs £10 – £8 concession. To join a London Walk, simply meet your guide at the designated tube station at the appointed time. Details of all London Walks can be found at www.walks.com.
