Have a mindful moment with our online jigsaws featuring some of the people and images which feature in our Pride in Suffolk’s Past exhibition. The puzzles start easy and get harder!

Louisa Garrett Anderson was a surgeon and suffragette who was born on 28th July 1873 in Aldeburgh, Suffolk.  Throughout her lifetime, Louisa’s work, both medical and suffrage, was carried out alongside Flora Murray. They lived and worked together until Flora’s death in 1923, and they remain together to this day, in a shared grave, under the inscription ‘We have been gloriously happy’.
