reading room

This is the British Museum Reading Room (formerly the British Library). On the very desks in this room many budding writers have studied, formulated their ideas and scribbled away. Most have faded into history to be remembered only by these walls, but a few who worked here developed ideas that captured the imagination of the world, these include Charles Dickens, Karl Marx, Sigmund Freud, Vladimir Lenin, W.B. Yeats, Virginia Woolf, Mahatma Gandhi, George Bernard Shaw, Thomas Hardy, Thackeray, Oscar Wilde, T. S. Eliot, H. G. Wells, and the list goes on.
