When Leonard and Virginia Woolf got married, they were determined to get a dog name John and start their own press called Hogarth.

Don’t know if they ever got their dog John but on this day in 1917, the Woolfs started Hogarth Press from the dining room of their home in Richmond.

The picture in this Literary History post was just taken in Brighton where I was a few days ago. This is now an Indian restaurant but in 1940, after a visit to a psychiatrist, Virginia Woolf ate at what was then an English fare pub and then went home the next day where she committed suicide.
