diving helmet pioneer

i see a lot of london blue plaques in my daily wanderage but i don’t want to overburden you with boring things so i usually don’t take their photos.
i was impressed by this one on Denmark Street (aka Tin Pan Alley). I was down there earlier looking at Telecasters. Above ‘Rockers’ guitar shops (claiming to beat the price on any Fender) was this sign informing us that Augustus Siebe, pioneer of the Diving Helmet lived and worked here.
with the volume of guitar widdling in the music shop i could have done with a diving helmet myself.
another man who could do with wearing a helmet is telco john who just came back from lunch with a trendy-boy haircut:
