Virginia Woolf GLC Blue Plaque, Fitzroy Square, London (Public Domain Photograph)

This GLC Blue Plaque to Virginia Woolf was on the same house in Fitzroy Square, London as the memorial plaque to George Bernard Shaw, showing they both lived in the house at different times.

Virginia Woolf (Virginia Stephen) lived in the house from 1907 to 1911.

The GLC (Greater London Council) when it existed, put up many of these blue plaques around London and you will often spot them as you walk around the city.

Virginia Woolf (née Stephen) (January 25, 1882 – March 28, 1941) was an English novelist and essayist regarded as one of the foremost modernist literary figures of the twentieth century.

Between the first and second world wars, Virginia Woolf was a significant figure in London literary society and an important member of the Bloomsbury Group.

Virginia Woolfs’ most famous works include the novels Mrs Dalloway (1925), To the Lighthouse (1927), and Orlando (1928), and the book-length essay A Room of One’s Own (1929) with its famous dictum, “a woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction.”
