The marker is visible here to the left of the lightpole in the center of the picture - the marker's color is roughly the same as its background, thus making it difficult to spot.

3. Sir J. Forbes Robertson
"Sir Johnston Forbes-Robertson (16 January 1853 – 6 November 1937) was an English actor and theatre manager. He was considered the finest Hamlet of the Victorian era and one of the finest actors of his time, despite his dislike of the job and his lifelong belief that he was temperamentally unsuited to acting." - Wikipedia
