Louisa Innes Lumsden
Photographic portrait of Louisa Innes Lumsden that served as the frontispiece to her 1933 memoirs Yellow Leaves: Memories of a Long Life. This work is available to consult at Aberdeen City Libraries. The memoirs credit the portrait as sourced from St Leonard's School, 1877-1927 by Julia M. Grant and others (1927).

Lumsden (1840-1935) was an Aberdeen born promoter of women's education, a headmistress, and a suffragist. An account of her life and work is given in the Oxford National Dictionary of Biography.

There is a commemorative plaque to Lumsden at 214 Union Street, Aberdeen.
