Rita Martin

Margareta ‘Rita’ Martin, (1875-1958) started her photographic career in 1897 when she helped her elder sister Lallie Charles to run her studio. In 1906 she opened her own studio, working in a similar studio to Charles, photographing subjects in pale colours against a pure white background, and focused on actresses such as Lily Elsie and Lily Brayton and child studies, particularly of Gladys Cooper’s two children. Several of her most reproduced child studies were of the Luke Children, whose father, a carpenter for Waring and Gillows, was responsible for building her second studio. Martin’s and Charles’ few surviving negatives were presented to the National Portrait Gallery by their niece Lallie Charles Martin in 1994.

Happy days

I recently found these 1920’s enema pictures which brought back memories of “high, hot and a hell of  a lot,” nurses will understand the phrase 😉
