Rare and Beautiful Color Portraits of Mervyn O’Gorman’s Daughter in 1913

Born in Ireland, Mervyn O'Gorman (1871-1958) is best known as one of the greatest British aeronautical engineers. During the First World War he was head of the Royal Aircraft Establishment at Farnborough. He was also a motoring pioneer, writing O'Gorman's Motoring Pocket Book in 1904, and was actively involved in the Royal Automobile Club, becoming its vice-president. He also later played a key role in the introduction of the Highway Code. O'Gorman was an artist as well as an engineer, concentrating on etching and lacquer-work.

Although not a member of the RPS, he was also a talented photographer. A charming and humorous man with enormous physical and mental energy, he seems to have been almost universally liked and admired. Below is a small collection of gorgeous color photos of O’Gorman’s daughter, Christina, in 1913.
