James Parkinson's London

In the glazed red brick building at 1 Hoxton Square in London, James Parkinson lived and worked. He inherited the first floor office when his father died. The blue plaque is obscured by the restaurant umbrella. St. Leonard's, Shoreditch, the church where he was baptized, married, buried, is just down the road. Its portico is now a homeless shelter.
