William Blake poet & painter lived in a house formerly on this site 1793

Lambeth Archives, the official archive of Lambeth Borough Council in London within whose jurisdiction this plaque falls, have clarified for us [29/5/12] that the date given on the plaque which states Blake lived here from 1793 in incorrect. In fact he lived here from 1790 - 1800.
The local history sub-section of the Lambeth Archives section on the council website is here: http://www.lambeth.gov.uk/Services/LeisureCulture/LocalHistory/Local/
They host a substantial local history artefacts and records archive which is accessible to the public at Minet Library, 52 Knatchbull Road, London SE5 9QY, as well as running free history walks and events year-round across Lambeth.
A large part of their photographic collection has been digitised, and can be found on the Lambeth Landmark website: http://landmark.lambeth.gov.uk/default.asp
