HISTORICAL NOTE: No.5 was the home of William Butler Yeats,
Irish poet and dramatist (plaque). Thomas Cubitt was
responsible for the development of the Bedford Estate north
and east of Russell Square. The coherently designed group of
original shopfronts in Woburn Walk and Duke's Road (qqv) is an
exceptional architectural composition and survival.
