Lamb's Conduit Street
Lamb's Conduit Street is a street in Bloomsbury in the West End of London, West End of London. There are many independent traders along the street. The street is named after William Lambe, in recognition of the £1,500 he gave for the rebuilding of the Holborn Conduit in 1564. (According to ''The London Encyclopaedia'', "The conduit was an Elizabethan dam made in one of the tributaries of the River Fleet, Fleet River and restored in 1577 by William Lamb, who also provided 120 pails for poor women".) The remains of the head of the conduit can be seen on the side of a 1950s building on the corner between Lamb's Conduit Street and Long Yard. Notable buildings include The Lamb (pub), The Lamb public house, and The People's Supermarket food cooperative.

Jacob's Room
''Jacob's Room'' is the third novel by Virginia Woolf, first published on 26 October 1922. The novel centres, in a very ambiguous way, around the life story of the protagonist Jacob Flanders and is presented almost entirely through the impressions other characters have of Jacob. Thus, although it could be said that the book is primarily a character study and has little in the way of plot or background, the narrative is constructed with a void in place of the central character if, indeed, the novel can be said to have a 'protagonist' in conventional terms. Motifs of emptiness and absence haunt the novel and establish its elegy, elegiac feel. Jacob is described to us, but in such indirect terms that it would seem better to view him as an amalgam of the different perceptions of the characters and narrator. He does not exist as a concrete reality, but rather as a collection of memories and sensations. Plot summary Set in pre-war England, the novel begins in Jacob's childhood and fol ...
