Unseen Suffragette Photographs Return to London’s East End After 100 years.
Discover a unique, free exhibition of photographs by suffragette Norah Smyth this November.
Behind the lens and on the streets, Norah Smyth was a force to be reckoned with.
These remarkable photographs, taken 100 years ago will be displayed just a stones-throw from where they were originally taken in Bethnal Green.
Whether your interested in feminism, local history, photography or all of the above, this is one to pop in your diary for a drizzly day. And it's all absolutely free, in the the EastEnd's best kept secret space: Four Corners.
A talented artist and organiser, Smyth used her photographic skills to provide images for the ELFS’ campaigns and newspaper, focusing on local women and children living in poverty.
These compelling photographs offer an intimate record of the ELFS’ activities during 1914 – 18, an extraordinary moment in women’s social history.
