Perhaps she did but the family didn't really need the money and I doubt that she was really interested in making any income from photography other than the novelty of it.

Her photographic career only lasted about eleven years whilst she lived here on the Isle of Wight. I think it reduced significantly when the family moved back to India (Ceylon) around 1875.

EDIT: All of this reminds me that Dimbola Lodge has free entry for the whole of February - so I will be going this weekend!
