Sophy Kelly at a Meeting

The "Queen of Peddar Road," pioneer educator Sophy Kelly founded the private Hill Grange High School, served as a justice of peace in Bombay, and maintained close associations with key political figures in India. "Miss Kelly" was known for the elaborate functions she hosted, including the one pictured here, a meeting for government officials held at Hill Grange school.
