The sweets stall at The Women’s Exhibition, Prince’s Skating Rink, May 1909. The Women’s Exhibition, was organised by the Women’s Social and Political Union primarily as a fund-raising event. Over fifty stalls, decorated in purple, white and green displayed a variety of items for sale that had been donated or made by suffragettes. Alongside the suffragettes running the sweets stall, can be seen Emmeline Pankhurst, to the right of the image. At the top a partial view of the murals designed by Sylvia Pankhurst that decorated the walls of the hall. ¬©Museum of London
