Einstein's shed

When Albert Einstein visited Cromer, Norfolk in 1933, he came as the invitee of MP Commander Oliver Locker-Lampson (standing next to Einstein), recounts an interesting post on the Science Museum blog. And during this time (he was escaping from Nazi persecution - note the armed guard at the right of the photo), Mr Einstein sat for a bust by Jacob Epstein in this hut where he lived and worked close to Cromer in Roughton Heath. A blue plaque in the village commemorates his stay.
