Caterers at The Women's Exhibition, Knightsbridge. These women catered to the visitors of The Women's Exhibition held at Princes' Skating Rink, Knightsbridge, on 13-26 May 1909. They were members of the Women's Social and Political Union, who had volunteered to dress as tea girls. The tea was served in white china decorated with a green edge and the initials W.S.P.U. with a symbolic figure, all designed by Sylvia Pankhurst. The union colours of purple, green and white were used throughout the exhibition.
