An exhibition featuring the works of a pioneering photographer from Fulham will be held next year, it has been announced.
Pictures by Christina Broom, many of which have never been seen by the public, will go on display at Museum of London Docklands in 2015.
They will include poignant images she took of Christmas in the First World War barracks and photographs of festive celebrations. Other images on display include suffragettes along with leader Christabel Pankhurst, members of the royal family and other key events in the capital.
Ms Broom was a prolific photographer between 1903, when she published her first news photographs as postcards at the age of 40, until her death in 1939.
She famously captured Rudyard Kipling's son Jack shortly before he died fighting in The Great War and is widely regarded as the UK's first female press photographer.
The free exhibition, featuring a selection of her 40,000 photographs and entitled Soldiers and Suffragettes: the photography of Christina Broom, is the first solo dedicated to her work.
Anna Sparham, curator of photographs at the Museum of London said: “Christina Broom is a somewhat under-appreciated figure in photography, and we hope that this major exhibition will redress this.
“It will not just show off her work, but portray Broom, who was a formidable, determined woman, and commercially astute – taking advantage of a rapidly growing postcard market.”
She spent much of her active years as a photographer living in Fulham , and sold her photos from a stall outside the Royal Mews beside Buckingham Palace.
Though she had other female contemporaries when she started out, they worked from studios while Mrs Broom took to the streets from her home in Fulham.
Also featuring in the exhibition, which will run from June 19 to November 1 from the West India Dock Road museum, will be images from key London events including the Varsity Boat race, Lord Mayor's Parade, royal coronations and funerals and historical pageants.
