We would like to thank everyone who has got in touch so far to help us with our #FindingGerty campaign. Now we are launching the second batch of images of people we are still working to identify. Visit our Flickr page to see if you recognise any of the new faces in our line up of unidentified sitters.
Find out more about our Gerty Simon collection and our upcoming exhibition here.
