National Portrait Gallery

Mountstewart volunteers last day in London
What a wonderful behind the scenes tour of the items we hope to have at Mountstewart later in the year. The staff were so helpful and as interested in what we had to say.

We all knew how renowned Lady Edith Londonderry was in her time but to see her portrayed outside of Mountstewart heightened our awareness of her power and role for women.
We looked at the male figures who also had a lot of influence for and against women in their fight for equality in voting.


The votes for women exhibition in the gallery open to the public.

Many of the group were anxious about the snow and getting back to the airport but I nipped back to the V&A
