Female painter in 1901


Active member
My great aunt is described as a painter (artist) in the 1901 census. At the time she was a 20-year old unmarried woman, living as a boarder in a house in Blackpool.

Does anyone have any idea what the likelihood is that she was actually an artist, or might she have made a living in a less reputable fashion?:redface:
