NEVER BEFORE SEEN Photos of KM and her family

The Katherine Mansfield Society would like to acknowledge the enormous generosity of Janine Renshaw-Beauchamp, grand-daughter of Jeanne Beauchamp, and great-niece of Katherine Mansfield, for allowing us to showcase her family photo album, which is of such interest to Mansfield enthusiasts worldwide. The photographs were initially scanned by Gerri Kimber and then painstakingly edited, watermarked and uploaded to the website by Tracey Macleod. Janine Renshaw-Beauchamp kindly provided the information on each photos, photos of Leslie, Mansfield’s adored younger brother, pictures of Vera, Chaddie and Jeanne (Mansfield’s sisters) and photos of one of Mansfield’s dresses, her sewing bag and needle case, again, all showcased for the first time. As a group of photographs, they renew and enhance our understanding of the Beauchamp family.
