Find the site of the Texas Legation

Whilst London does have a much more prominent building pretending to be a Texan overseas mission, a tiny sign on Pickering Place marks the place of a real Texas Legation.

The sign marks the site of the base from which representatives of an independent Republic of Texas liaised with the British Government from 1842 until the state joined the United States on 28th December 1845.

The plaque was installed by the Anglo-Texan Society. For more information, see http://terry-uniqueplaces.blogspot.com/2010/02/embassy-of-texas-in-london.html
