Women's Exhibition, Knightsbridge, 1909. Kensington W.S.P.U. stand at The Women's Exhibition, Knightsbridge, 1909. More than 50 stalls were set up at The Women's Exhibition held at Princes Skating Rink, Knightsbridge, on 13-26 May 1909. The various stalls were decorated by the stall-holders to include the Women's Social and Political Union colours of purple, green and white. Mrs Pankhurst (seated) had appealed in previous months to union members for hats, veils and scarves to sell to raise money for the suffrage campaign fund. Stores such as Liberty, Derry & Toms and Peter Robinson and several Bond Street milliners also donated hats. Mabel Tuke is standing to the left.
