Black & White imageEarly 1960s. Image shows some of the female workforce of John Collier's (remembered by many as Prices Tailors Ltd. although it was sold in 1954) as they cluster around celebrity and glamorous film star, Patricia Medina, who has dressed for her visit in a silk headscarf and fur coat. Standing to the left of her is Emily Bean, wearing a patterned knitted waistcoat.
