Bloomsbury Group plaque unveiled in Brunswick Square

Simon Keynes, the great nephew of economist John Maynard Keynes, unveiled a Marchmont Association (MA) plaque commemorating five members of the famous Bloomsbury Group, who lived at 38 Brunswick Square in 1911-12. The plaque is installed on the UCL School of Pharmacy building, which replaced the original Georgian house lived in by Virginia and Leonard Woolf, the artist Duncan Grant, John Maynard Keynes and Virginia's brother Adrian Stephen. Virginia and Leonard were married at St Pancras Registry Office whilst living there and Virginia's life was saved by Maynard's doctor brother, Geoffrey, when she attempted suicide whilst staying there a few years later. She survived the ordeal and went on to write her most famous novels. [more]
