Slot machine

Is this really that famous – indeed, iconic – portrait by Margaret Cameron of Virginia Woolf? (Click on the photo for a closer look.) If it is, and I’m pretty sure it is, what on earth is she doing on a risqué slot machine in the Museé Mechanique on Fisherman’s Wharf?

I put in a quarter and saw what every married woman must not avoid. I wasn’t impressed. Neither would Virginia have been. She may even, though I can’t be sure, have avoided it.
