History Plaque on Literary Guild
History Plaque on Literary Guild
This stone is at the entrance to the building on the corner of Clarence Street and Bridge Street and dates from 1835. The building was built as the Literary and Scientific Institution and H G Wells is amongst those who lectured here. In the late 19th century it was a Liberal Club and later became a piano shop, then offices of a newspaper and printers. By 1933 it was an antique shop named Griffyn Gallery, and from 1950 to 1979 it was Staines first library. Since then it has been occupied by the Showmen's Guild.
