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.

2.20 - Tales of Two Women
Sir Samuel Way was a prominent figure in the colony of South Australia as it became part of the new Commonwealth of Australia. The two women were with him at different stages of his career and they had very different experiences with him. Firstly, his secret relationship with Susannah Gooding and their five children, while his career was rapidly growing. And then the public adoration of his relationship with Kitty Gordon at the peak of his career at the very centre of Adelaide high society.
