    While Bloomsbury is most associated with Virginia Woolf and her Bohemian circle of writers and artists, the neighbourhood was earlier the undisputed intellectual quarter of 19th-century London. Embracing the high life of the squares, the nonconformity of churches, the parades of shops, schools, hospitals and poor homes, Ashton draws on a wealth of archival resources and brings to life the educational, medical and social reformists who lived and worked in Bloomsbury and who led egalitarian crusades for education, emancipation and health.
