Miss Sallie Currier, Houlgate, Normandy, 1912 by  Helen Messinger Murdoch
 Helen Messinger Murdoch (1862 – 1956) was a remarkable woman – one of the earliest colour photographers and one of the first female aviators.
Murdoch joined  The Royal Photographic Society in 1911, becoming a fellow of the society the following year. A frequent visitor to Europe she showed her work at a number of venues, including the Wigmore Street Gallery and the Halcyon Women’s Club. In October 1913 she gave a talk illustrated with her lantern slides to a packed meeting of the Royal Photographic Society.
Later that year, aged 51, Murdoch decided to embark on a round the world tour – the first woman photographer to undertake such a challenging journey. She travelled through France to Egypt and then on to Palestine, India, Burma, Ceylon, Hong Kong, China, Japan, the Philippines, Hawaii, Honolulu, San Francisco, San Diego and overland to Boston, arriving home in 1915.
