Gladys White, nee Northcote in 1924 - painting by George Bell
George Bell painted this portrait in lieu of payment for surgery performed by Gladys's husband, Dr ER White, on George's wife who had peritonitis/appendicectomy while pregnant. Scary thought with no life support, monitoring, early anaesthetics, no antibiotics. Mother and baby survived, and Lisbette (the baby) remained friends with Gladys's daughter, Elizabeth, for the rest of their lives.
