J.M. Barrie plaque unveiled

David Ogilvy Barrie, the great, great nephew of J.M. Barrie, unveiled a commemorative plaque to the creator of 'Peter Pan' at the former site of 8, Grenville Street, where Barrie lived in 1885-88, shortly after he first arrived in London from Scotland. The unveiling took place on Monday, 30th November in the company of a large crowd of Barrie followers and Marchmont Association supporters. It was at 8 Grenville Street where Barrie gained his inspiration for Peter Pan, where he imagined Peter flying in through Wendy's top floor window from a tree in Brunswick Square Gardens opposite, possibly the Brunswick Plane.
