One of my contacts off the photo site Flickr recently went to Sheffield and found a plaque to the dancer Pavlova.

It's located at the top of the ramp leading up to what was once The Victoria Station and is now the car park for The Holiday Inn.

Between us we haven't been able to find any information on why this plaque is there. Anyone have any ideas?

This is a link to said photo...

Oh just noticed spelt Pavolva wrong in the title :-) - no idea how to change that so if any admins read this.....

It was just part of the dessert menu for the hotel restaurant.

According to this ... http://crofthouse.info/lyceumtheatre.htm Anna Pavlova appeared at the Lyceum, maybe she stayed at the Royal whilst here?

Did she bring her dog?Probably, and the bell too, I guess ;)

I certainly would have been salivating and first in the queue to sample her meringue :P
