Christina Broom started her career at the age of 40 in 1900s and was seen as Britain's first female press photographer. Broom captured pictures of soldiers having Christmas Day lunch in their London barracks during World War One. Her collection of 40,000 images included pictures of suffragettes, Queen Victoria and London in early 20th century. Mrs Broom made her craft a family affair, involving her daughter Winifred who printed her photographs as postcards, which the talented photographer then sold from her stall in London when postcards became popular. Museum of London Docklands will hold an exhibition of her works early next year to show her extraordinary life.
