Series VI: Photographs, Graphic Materials, and Artifacts, 1900-circa 1950s

Scope and Content Note

This series contains photographs, negatives, graphic materials, and artifacts, many of which are personal in nature. The photographs are mostly images of Gawthorpe, her family and friends, and a variety of buildings, landmarks, and landscapes, taken during various vacations and trips. Most photographs originate from albums presumably created by Gawthorpe and have descriptive information written on the back (the negatives from these albums are also included). To a lesser extent, the photographic materials depict British suffragette leaders and lesser-known suffragists wearing clothing with pro-suffrage slogans or otherwise engaged in activities in support of the movement.

Graphic materials consist of oversize programs, flyers, and leaflets related to the suffrage movement. An article on the forcible feeding of suffrage prisoners is also included. Other graphic materials include reproductive prints of religious scenes and various other subjects.

Most of the artifacts are personal effects, including tarot cards, a calling card case, a cigarette holder, an engraved fountain pen, human hair (likely Gawthorpe's), and other items. However, there is also an apron with a pro-suffrage slogan and other artifacts from the women's suffrage movement.
