This chapter assesses the illustrations for Virginia Woolf's London Scene essays as they were first published in the British Good Housekeeping magazine, 1920–32. Are etchings, paintings, or photographs adequate for capturing Woolf's kinetic prose? No, but moving pictures are, such as the Wonderful London and Open Road series of cinema shorts from 1924.

Keywords:   illustrations, British Good Housekeeping, cinema, London Scene essays, Virginia Woolf, Moving pictures
