Our Society has been helping women into the work place since 1859. In 1871 Elizabeth Walker was given a rent-free room to help her establish her career as a glass engraver. Queen Victoria later purchased two of Elizabeth’s engraved goblets and jugs. We would like to thank Elizabeth’s descendants for sending us this photo and letting us know a little about Elizabeth’s life. It is good to hear about beneficiaries – even after nearly 150 years!
