NIGHTINGALE, Florence (1820-1910),
In a house on this site, Florence Nightingale, 1820-1910, lived and died.
10 South Street, W1
Note: New plaque on rebuilt premises. Original plaque erected by the Duke of Westminster and removed when the house was pulled down in 1929.
As you can see from the plaque Florence Nightingale lived to 90 years of age, very impressive for someone who spent so much of their time surrounded by the very ill and dying.
The plaque is one of many on the back roads tucked in behind Park Lane. I' ll try and paste more over the coming days.
