Perhaps you missed the news of the plaque commemorating the Woolfs' residence, unveiled earlier this year? This was the press release:

On Saturday 14 April, following a one-day conference on ‘Virginia Woolf and Her Relatives’ organised by the Virginia Woolf Society of Great Britain, a blue plaque dedicated to Virginia and Leonard Woolf will be unveiled by the Society’s President, Dame Eileen Atkins. 
The plaque will be located on the front wall of the Tavistock Hotel, near to where the Woolfs’ house used to stand at 52 Tavistock Square, before its destruction during the Second World War. The Woolfs lived at no. 52 from 1924 to 1939, during which time Virginia Woolf wrote many of her novels, including Mrs Dalloway, To the Lighthouse, Orlando, The Waves, The Years, as well as the feminist classics, A Room of One’s Own and Three Guineas.
The unveiling of the plaque will take place at 5pm, and will be followed by a reception in the Tavistock Hotel. All are welcome to the unveiling; the reception afterwards is for VWSGB members and invited guests.
The plaque has been funded by the Virginia Woolf Society of Great Britain with the generous help of the Tavistock Hotel (Imperial London Hotels Group).

I can send you a photo of it if you like.

 I was once again in London briefly, staying as often within a stone's throw, if that's the phrase, of the VW bust in Tavistock Square, where she lived from 1924 to 1939 in a house no longer standing. Do we know where precisely along the (rectangular) Square was the house?   Didn't she also live for shorter periods in Mecklenburgh Sq and Brunswick Sq, the latter so utterly and wholly rebuilt?  Do any photos survive of those houses and their interiors?   
This is of course base curiosity unworthy of a Woolf reader. "Because he has built a house, he would have us believe that there is a person living there."  (Or similar, said of Arnold Bennett).     Harish Trivedi   _______________________________________________
