On This Very Spot William Shakespeare lived from 1597 until his death in 1616. His Globe Playhouse in London wasn't built until 1599, so it is clear that he was traveling back and forth during most of this period.

On This Very Spot in the house next door (bottom photo) lived Shakespeare's granddaughter and her husband Dr. Thomas Nash.

On This Very Spot in the 18th century, Shakespeare's house was pulled down and a street built across part of the property (top photo).
