Alice Elliott



ID: A painting of Alice Elliott. She sits in a chair against a deep red wall in the background. She wears a red hat, revealing some of her short grey hair underneath. She has round wire-framed glasses and is wearing a long pink coat and a grey blouse. This portrait of Alice Elliott was painted in honour of her service to deaf children. The Alice Elliott School for Deaf Children on Childwall Abbey Road, Liverpool, closed in July 1993. An ex-pupil of the school remembers: “The portrait was hung in the school entrance close to the headmaster’s office. It played a very large part of our school history. As we arrived and departed the school, we would always be greeted with the portrait hanging on the wall.”
