Looking for photos of Stepney Councillors 1919 to 1931

Julia O'Brien (nee Sweeney) was first elected for the Tower Ward of the Stepney Borough Council in 1919; was re-elected for that ward in 1925; stood and was elected for the St George's in the East North-West Ward in 1928 but was defeated in the elections in 1931. I’d love to find a photo of her for my 92-year old aunt. Julia was her aunt. I contacted Tower Hamlets and they gave me this info, but didin’t have a photo.

I will be in London in April and have allocated a couple of days to look. Her husband James was also a councillor. Any suggestions on where I might find photos or the newspapers or publications that may have published photos or articles about the Councillors? All thoughts appreciated!
