Christina Broom is regarded as the UK’s first female press photographer. With creativity and a bold pioneering spirit she took her camera to the streets and captured thousands of images of people and events in London, revealing unique observations of the city at the start of the 20th century. One hundred years later, a major new exhibition of her works at the Museum of London Docklands reveals the extraordinary story of this self-taught novice who turned photography into a business venture to support her family.
