Image from the Archive

This portrait is thought to be from the studio of the photographer Olive Edis and probably depicts a member of the Cox family.

We’re cheating slightly with our image this time as it isn’t actually World War One related – however the photographer Olive Edis was the first female war photographer and in 1919 she did travel to France and Belgium to document the aftermath of the fighting.

There is just one more day to see the excellent Fishermen and Kings exhibition at the Norwich Castle Museum however from March 2017 you will be able to see a new Olive Edis exhibition at Cromer Museum.
