New photo of 'Lady of the Lamp'





A previously unseen photograph of Florence Nightingale is going on display to mark the 150th anniversary of her return from the Crimean War.
Taken by amateur photographer William Slater, the picture shows the "lady of the lamp" sitting reading outside her family home in Embley Park, Hampshire.

The newly discovered photograph will go on display until 7 November at the Florence Nightingale Museum in London.

She gained worldwide renown for her work as a nurse during the Crimean War.
