J.M. Barrie’s blue plaque, the creator of Peter Pan!
Hundreds of blue plaques can be found all around London indicating a place of historical significance and their famous inhabitants. You can go on full day trips with friends trying to locate all plaques. It’s like a treasure-hunt really!
A friend called my attention to a blue plaque one day while we were wandering around. You can quite easily overlook it, but there it was, Sir James M. Barrie’s (1860-1937) blue plaque. Novelist and dramatist – the creator of Peter Pan, or The Boy Who Wouldn’t Grow Up. I loved reading about Peter’s adventures in Neverland! I’ve walked pass the Peter Pan statue quite a few times but I never realised until then that J.M. Barrie actually got inspired to write the famous play in Kensington Gardens!
Now it’s your turn, go out and see if you can spot a blue plaque of someone you know! Have fun!

The 1950's rockabilly fashion and music trend, marked by white, working class, rural America and the combination of blues, country and rock n' roll, peaked in the 1950's. However, rockabilly may have just gotten one of its ultimate hurrahs in the 1980's when France went crazy over the trend.
