Glenn Wood long time Rohanist and author of Rohan Confessions sent us this great post.
Jane Austen shopped at Rohan.
A more plausible story is that Jane Austen’s brother Henry was a partner in a bank at 10 Henrietta Street, which is now the Rohan shop. Henry lived for several years above the bank (where the green plaque is) and Jane would stay with him when she came to London on business – usually to visit her publisher.
The sad truth is that I am addicted to spending money in the Rohan store. Shortly after taking this photograph I went in and bought several items, including the linen shirt which I am seen wearing in photographs later the same day.
Glenn has shared some great pics on flikr. Thank you Glenn.
