London – Bloomsbury 5

 

Just one block west of Tavistock Square (see previous blog) is Gordon Square where the Bloomsbury Group began. Virginia moved to 46 Gordon Square in 1904 with her sister Vanessa and brother’s Adrian and Thoby. On Thursday evenings they entertained many writers and painters including Lytton Strachey, Clive Bell, Roger Fry, and Leonard Woolf.
