Peering into the square

Today’s picture is from Gordon Square in Bloomsbury, London.  Bloomsbury was home in the early 1900s to the Bloomsbury Set of leading writers, artists and thinkers, many of whom lived within a stone’s throw of each other in this part of London, several of them in Gordon Square itself.

Today, I always feel that this square has a quiet and slightly magical feel – away from the hustle and bustle of Russell Square or Bloomsbury Square, it’s a little haven which invites you to walk through its gates and down its gently meandering paths.  One is drawn in to the miniature landscape, which still echoes with the chatter and debate of Woolf, Forster, Keynes and Strachey.
