Location: 27 Dunraven Street, Mayfair, London

Description: This street used to be called Norfolk Street until 1939 when it was renamed in honour of the fourth Earl, Lord Dunraven (1841-1926). He was a politician and yachtsman who lived here in 1895.

Dunraven was educated at Christ Church College, Oxford. After serving some time as a lieutenant in the 1st Life Guards, a cavalry regiment, he became, at age twenty-six, a war correspondent for the London newspaper The Daily Telegraph and covered the Abyssinian War.

In this capacity, he shared a tent with Henry Stanley of the New York Herald. Dunraven then became a special correspondent for a big London daily during the Franco-Prussian War in 1870–71. He reported from the Siege of Paris, saw the Third Carlist War and war in Turkey, and probably the Russo-Turkish War.

Dunraven witnessed both the signing of the Convention of Versailles which ended the Franco-Prussian War in 1871, and later the signing of the Treaty of Versailles in 1919.
