Caroline Graham - 1868 - 1954
Caroline St. Clair Graham was born in Dursley in Gloucestershire in 1868 and died in Bournemouth on 20 January 1954. Little is known about the intervening 86 years, but she exhibited 'Launching the Lifeboat' at the Royal Academy in 1908 (a Penzance subject, but sent in from Rednock, Dursley, Glos) and was listed as living in Newlyn in 1913 when she exhibited at the London Salon.
The lifeboat depicted in Penlee House's painting is believed to be the 'Elizabeth and Blanche'.
