Default Who was Sir Emery Walker?

Visited London the other day, attending an exhibition (which was not really worth the trouble of driving 120 miles anyway), when the wife suggested that we stop off for stroll along the Thames, near Eyot Island in Hammersmith.

We came across a building on Hammersmith Terrace with a blue plaque on the wall (see attached image), it belongs to a trust and is sometimes open to the public.

I wonder if someone knows about Sir Emery Walker. The trust's web site have quite a lot of stuff on it, but not very much relating to typography, which I assume he is known for.
