Bringing the past to life with colour

Emmeline Pankhurst

Emmeline Pankhurst, political activist and leader of the British suffragette movement, was named as one of the 100 Most Important People of the 20th Century by Time Magazine in 1999.
This photo is by British photographer Olive Edis, so was probably taken between 1925, when Pankhurst returned from Canada where she had been living for a few years until she “tired of long Canadian winters”, and her death in 1928.
