Looking at Google StreetView, I can't see any plaque on 54 Denbigh Street?

Hi

Is it the one that has

T Glynne Davies

1926 - ?


I can't quite make out the rest - on a small laptop with max zoom.

Looking at Google StreetView, I can't see any plaque on 54 Denbigh Street?

I think it's No. 64 not 54.

Yes sorry it is
I can read the 1968 so next bit is 1926 you said
 and Davies  the rest I cannot get Why would this be up
 I feel I have been to this house as a child in  I would say around 1964
 but it was a house also a dressmaking shop I can see then doing
this
 I think it was something to do with my
 grandmothers family
But never went again
Thanks

Thomas Glynne Davies (12 January 1926 April 1988), usually known as T. Glynne Davies, was a Welsh poet, novelist and television and radio broadcaster. Davies was born at 64 Denbigh Street, in Llanrwst, Denbighshire, Wales.

From wikipedia:

And, a family tribute website:

The plaque says:
