I've just been listening to a radio programme (Radio 4 - Material World) in which there was a news item about an English Heritage Blue Plaque being fixed on the former home of a Nobel prize-winning chemist.
It seems to me that there are a number of candidates for Blue Plaques in the glass-making industry. If I were to suggest a few, I'd nominate John Northwood, Frederick Carder, and Benjamin Richardson for a start.
Apparently English Heritage are always open to suggestions. Anyone else with some ideas?
