Lady Florence Norman

“Lady Florence Norman, a suffragette, on her motor-scooter in 1916, travelling to work at offices in London where she was a supervisor. The scooter was a birthday present from her husband, the journalist and Liberal politician Sir Henry Norman.”

Yes!! I DO love images of competent professional women, with supportive husbands, who took on important work during the terrible years of the 1914-1918 war.
