Breast Cancer Awareness

All around the borough are blue plaques attached to buildings. They usually denote the home of a famous citizen or mark the site of an historical event.

A few days ago I noticed what I thought was a new one. I only caught site of it briefly as I passed in a taxi. It said someone "lived here 1998-2005". "Hang on," I thought, "There may have been houses near here a few years ago, but this is at the back of the supermarket."

It turns out, when I looked more closely, a few days later, that it is actually part of a poster from the Marie Curie Trust promoting awareness of Breast Cancer.

That's a great idea for a poster! Someone here should steal it! (Though I can't think of a place in the US that has plaques like that -- it seems more like a European / English tradition (Paris is full of them!)
