This section was put together using materials held in the Local Studies Department. As well as books and original materials on the locality and residents, cuttings and illustrations have been collected on the blue plaque houses and their residents. Indeed, English Heritage researchers use these resources to prepare their cases. Biography is one of the main specialties at the Central Library with some 90,000 volumes stocked. Materials even on the most obscure recipients are found in this marvelous resource. The contact details for the library can be found at www.rbkc.gov.uk/libraries.
