Sketches of Edwardian women from the archives

Edwardian woman

February's Archive of the month features drawings of female students from the Edwardian era. 'Edwardian bluestockings: women at Cambridge' looks at the history of female students at Cambridge, illustrated by the drawings of FR Waley.

Waley came to King's as a student in 1912 and spent much of his time drawing the women in his lectures. The Archive of the month shows just a few of his sketches, and gives a glimpse into the fashion of educated women at the time.
