Notes NOTES: Leonard and Virginia Woolf lived in Tavistock Square from 1924 to 1939 and ran the Hogarth Press from the basement there. The interior decorations were by Virginia's sister, Vanessa Bell, and Duncan Grant. The decorative panel over the mirror is a needlework panel for which the original design (gouache on board) is at Charleston, Bell and Grant's home in Sussex.
