A Snapshot in time
35 Hertford Place (back of Hertford Terrace)
Annie was born in Coventry in 1864 and her father, Alfred Fridlander, was well known in the city having made his fortune as a watchmaker of some renowned. He was also a director of the Triumph Cycle Co., served Coventry city council for 3 years, was later elected County magistrate and was one of the original founders of the Jewish synagogue in Barras Lane. Annie was an active campaigner for votes for women in the city, joining Coventry Women's Suffrage Society - the local branch of the law abiding National Union of Women's Suffrage Societies (NUWSS) led by Mrs Millicent Fawcett. Annie's family were clearly supportive of female suffrage too as on occasion she was accompanied to meetings by both her mother Nora and her father Alfred. Researcher: Tara Morton.
