Lady Alington by Madame Yevonde

Lady Alington, formerly Lady Mary Ashley-Cooper (1902-1936), eldest daughter of the Earl and Countess of Shaftesbury. Pictured in colour by Madame Yevonde in April 1936. Described as tall and sturdily built, she was, according to The Times, 'the best swimmer in Mayfair' and won countless titles at the Bath Club. She married Lord Alington in 1928 and had one daughter born the following year. She was a familiar figure on the social scene, distinctive because of her hair, which was shoulder length (unusual for the 1930s). Tragically, on 2 August 1936, four months after this photograph was published in The Bystander, Lady Alington died while undergoing an operation for acute appendicitis. Date: 1936
