Short biography
Florence Eveleen Eleanor (nee Oliffe) Bell, Lady Bell, was a noted Victorian writer and social reformer. In 1876, she married Sir Hugh Bell. It was through his ownership of Bell Brothers, a collection of mines, ironworks, and foundries in Yorkshire, that she came to know and care about the lives of the workers. Her book At the Works: Study of a Manufacturing Town provides one of the most graphic accounts of the squalor and hardship experienced by these families. She was also the stepmother of Gertrude Bell (1868-1926), the famous traveller, diplomat and archeologist, and editor of her letters.
