Virginia and Adrian Stephen playing cricket, c.1886

Virginia and Adrian Stephen

A feisty Virginia Woolf and her younger brother Adrian play cricket in this picture as their parents watch from the porch at Talland House. In his memoir, Leslie Stephen says, “we made what we called a ‘lawn tennis’ ground on the most level bit, where the children delighted in playing small cricket every evening.”
