Slip of the camera...
The statue to Sigmund Freud is a real delight - interesting, poise, character and similarity - all captured in this bronze just at the bottom of Fitzjohn's Avenue and the start of Belsize Lane.
Freud was ground breaking in his theories and publicity for his theories and is one of the few people who's name has slipped into such widespread use in the laguague
Of course the crucial link with this location is that Freud - along with his wife Martha (this post listed Anna his daughter by mistake - see comment below) - lived at 20 Maresfield Gardens, Hampstead (of which more to follow). But that's why there is such a strong local link.
Sigmund's house is preserved and accessible - full details here: http://www.freud.org.uk/
