SE1, King Edward Walk, Morley College

These 10 portrait mosaics are the result of a project by Morley College to celebrate the achievements of significant women who have lived or worked in the Waterloo area. Left to right: Thrale, Seacole, Mallett, Hill, McCall, Szabo, Mellor, Kelly, Rabatts, Bell. There is a small label under each mosaic which we have transcribed. Many of these portraits seem to have been installed at a slight tilt; for our photos we have set the worst offenders upright.

See also another 4 portrait mosaics on the Westminster Bridge Road side of the college.
