the first woman Mayor of West Ham
This article is based upon an exhibition that I researched in 1985, whilst working as Sub Librarian, Local Studies Library at the London Borough of Newham. I found a folder of items that was in the Local Studies Library, headed Alderman Mrs Daisy Parsons. It contained cuttings, photographs, letters and certificates of various kinds. Using these items, and finding others, the exhibition opened in April 1985 at East Ham Library.
The following is based upon that exhibition, plus other items which have come to light since the exhibition took place, in particular from Mrs Parsons children and grandchildren and additional research undertaken since then.
