Quick Reference

A term coined to describe the ‘artists' quarter’ north of Oxford Street, London, which centred first on the Fitzroy Tavern, on the corner of Charlotte Street. Its focus then moved, according to Julian Maclaren‐Ross (Memoirs of the Forties, 1965) to the Wheatsheaf. Dylan Thomas, W. Empson, Tambimuttu of Poetry London, W. Lewis, G. Orwell, and many of the characters observed by A. Powell were among its habitués.
