Queen Alexandra, Coronation
The National Portrait Gallery entry records- "Alice Hughes (1857-1939), the daughter of the painter Edward Hughes, first took up photography to record her father's work before making her own portraits from 1892 onwards. Remarkably successful as a society and royal portraitist, Hughes was one of the most successful photographers of women in the Edwardian era, inspiring a large number of other women to take up photography as a career. Among the portraits included are Daisy, Countess of Warwick, Queen Mary and Queen Alexandra."
