This first-ever exhibition brings Norah Smyth's original photographs back to East London 100 years after they were taken. See some of the highlights here. 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, alongside other archival material.
