Unseen Suffragette Photographs Return to London’s East End After 100 years

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. Her compelling photographs offer an intimate record of the ELFS’ activities during 1914 – 18, an extraordinary moment in women’s social history.

We are delighted to launch the first-ever exhibition of Norah Smyth's work, which brings her original photographs back to East London 100 years after they were taken.

These photographs provide a remarkable document of Sylvia Pankhurst’s East London Federation of the Suffragettes, and an extraordinary moment in women’s social history during the First World War.

They are generously loaned by the International Institute of Social History in Amsterdam, alongside other archival material.  A programme of talks and walks runs alongside the exhibition.
