Today is the last day to visit a floor mosaic in place to recognise a leading face from the suffrage movement.

The ‘Face of Suffrage’ artwork has been on display at New Street Station in Birmingham since last month. It's made of a mosaic of more than 3,700 images of women from across the West Midlands and the UK.

From above, the collage shows Hilda Burkitt from Wolverhampton, a leading face from the suffrage movement in the West Midlands.

The team behind the project, the People's Picture, says more than five million people will have passed through the station for a chance to see the photo mosaic.
