#plaque366 Dodie Smith

A London commemorative plaque for every day in 2016. 

The plaques are selected from all walks of life, and all points of the London compass – and I'm taking requests too!

For a northern lass, Dorothy (Dodie) Gladys Smith has certainly left her mark on London. Moving from Manchester to London at the age of 14 in 1910 she attended St Paul's School and went on to become a student at the Royal Academy Of Dramatic Art in Gower Street. While resting as an actress she took a job at the famous Heel's store on Tottenham Court Road.

In a long career as a novelist and playwright Dodie Smith is famed as the writer of The Hundred and One Dalmatians – I blogged about that London classic earlier as part of the Cartoon & Comic Book Tour of London series. 

Find Dodie Smith's plaque at 18 Dorset Square NW1…
