[3] 31 Tite Street was originally built as a home and studio for Sir John Singer Sargent, the famous Edwardian portraitist. A procession of famous sitters including Ellen Terry and Henry James had their portraits painted here.

[4] John Adam Cramb (1862 – 1913) was a Scottish historian and fervent patriot. He published non-fiction works under his own name, and fiction under the pseudonym of R. A. Revermont. He was also an occasional lecturer on military history at the Staff College, Camberley, and at York, Chatham, and other centres. In London he gave private courses on history, literature and philosophy. His last series of lectures was delivered in February and March, 1913, the subject being the relations between England and Germany. In response to many requests, he was engaged in preparing these lectures for publication when he died in October 1913. The book, however, was published posthumously in 1914.
