A collection of historical and genalogical records
The new exhibition opened last week at the Annan Museum which covers the life and times of Lady Florence Dixie.
Lady Florence is remembered most for her association with women's football. As president of the British Ladies Football Club she helped give the game a high profile. The exhibition also takes a fresh look at her life and legacy including her trips to Patagonia and in Southern Africa to report on the Boar War and her political activity in woman's suffrage and dress reform. A solution to the 135 year old mystery of her attack at Windsor in 1883 is also presented as well as her mysterious last voyage to Cape Town in 1898.
There is still plenty of time to see it as the exhibition runs until June 23rd .
