  • Postcard portrait of Elsie Howey wearing her Holloway prison medal. The wording on the postcard 'Votes For Women' 'Miss Elsie Howey, Organizer: National Women's Social and Political Union' 4 Clements Inn confirms the production is too early for the issuing of hunger strike medals. This is is likely Elsie is wearing a prison medal engraved with her wing and cell number in Holloway. On the back is handwriten 'Dear Helena WIth loving Xmas wishes from Mary' and the card is addressed to 'James Kilburn, 60 Station Street, Loughborough'.
