DA018 - Roses of the Empire

DA018 - Roses of the Empire


Lady Constance, Miss Emily, Miss Primm, Fifi, Mrs French-Sheldon, Florence Baker, Mary Reilly.

These are all determined women - most of them missionaries, with a few explorers like Mrs French-Sheldon and Florence Baker and, by the late 1890s, the first few Kenyan settlers. In West Africa there were a few more wives of traders and officials - one of these was Lady Hodgeson, a participant in the first nightmarish retreat from Kumase in 1900.

Supplied unpainted.
