Description: This is where the great music hall and theatre star Lupino Lane (1892-1959) lived.

Born in Hackney Lupino, became a famous stage star as a child prodigy called Little Nipper. He went on to become a much-loved English actor and theatre manager.

He starred in silent films but made a real name and future for himself in the 1937 musical Me and My Girl which popularised the song The Lambeth Walk.
