Mary Seacole

Mary Seacole was born in Kingston, Jamaica, in 1805. Refused an interview by the war office in London who were recruiting nurses for the Crimea in 1854, she nevertheless paid for her own trip there and began nursing the wounded on the battlefield as well as setting up a convalescent home.


Mirpur in photographs

More than three quarters of the Pakistani community in Britain have their roots in and around Mirpur District of southern Azad Kashmir. These photographs, taken in 1997, explore the close links between British Mirpuris and Mirpur itself.

The city of Mumbai was originally seven islands. This small selection of paintings from the albums of Charles Harcourt Chambers, 1789-1828, Chief Justice of what was then Bombay, gives an idea of what the landscape looked like before building and industrialisation transformed the area.
