JM Barrie's London
« on: April 12, 2011, 10:02:31 AM »
I have added a new set of pictures on our Flickr Peter Pan Gallery, including pictures of Barrie's London homes,  the Llewelyn Davies family homes,  St John-at-Hampstead churchyard (where the du Mauriers and Llewelyn Davies families are buried). Also included are scenes from Kensington Gardens today, contrasting them with Arthur Rackham's illustrations of the same spot over 100 years ago. I will be adding more in time.

Glad you enjoyed them as much as I enjoyed taking them! I've now added some more and hope to include some of the Adelphi very soon.

Hi Esther

JM Barrie lived in two houses in London:

- 133 Gloucester Road in Kensington, London SW7 4TH (where he wrote The Little White Bird - among other works) from 1895-1902
- 100 Bayswater Road (also known as Leinster Corner) in Bayswater, London W2 3HJ (which has a blue plaque to his name and where he wrote Peter Pan), from 1902 to 1909

The place he lived at the longest however is his flat at the Adelphi Terrace, 3 Robert Street, London WC2N 6RL,  from 1909 to 1937 (there is another plaque to his name).

You can see photos of these on http://www.flickr.com/photos/24671749@N07/sets/72157626324576283/with/5729393629/

Peter Llewelyn Davies killed himself at Sloane Square tube station.
