Thomas Cook commemorated in Market Harborough

The other day, as shares in the Thomas Cook Group plummeted, I pointed out that Thomas Cook was living in Market Harborough when he first hit upon the idea of organising excursions.

What I didn't know until I researched that post is that this fact is commemorated by a small plaque high on the wall above the entrance to Quakers Yard in Adam and Eve Street. It is next to the excellent Duncan Murray Wines.

The moral is that I should look up more often.
