A Madame Yevonde portrait of Lady Elizabeth Paget

Lady Elizabeth Paget, daughter of the Marquess of Anglesey, was one of the train-bearers to Queen Elizabeth at the coronation of George VI. Madame Yevonde was a prolific and ground-breaking society portrait and commercial photographer active between 1915 and 1975. She is particularly well-known for her astonishingly modern work using the Vivex colour process during the 1930's. Her images of society folk and other personalities appeared regularly in The Sketch or The Tatler through the 1920's and 30's. Date: 19th May 1937, p310

Lady Muriel Paget & children, WW1

Lady Muriel Paget (1876 - 1938), nee Finch-Hatton, wife of Sir Richard Surtees Paget, second Baronet of Oldfallings Hall, Wolverhampton. Lady Paget was a humanitarian relief worker, first establishing soup kitchens in the poor districts of London, becoming secretary of the Invalid Kitchens' Fund. She then opened a kitchen catering for Belgian refugees in London at the start of the First World War. Her work then extended to Russia and Eastern Europe where she opened field and base hospitals, ambulances and worked indefatigably for the poor and needy both during and after the war - lobbying, training, recruiting social workers and nurses. In 1924 she organised the rescue and relief of stranded Britons in Russia called the British Subjects in Russia Relief Association. Lady Paget had five children, who were cared for by a nanny while their mother worked abroad almost continuously. Pictured here with her three daughters, Sylvia Mary, born 1901, Pamela Winefred, born 1903 and Angela Sibell, born 1906. The Sketch remarks on her work saying, 'Lady Muriel is much interested in the founding of Invalid Kitchens in the East End, in the running of which she is an expert, and also in various other forms of charitable effort and of war-work.' Date: 1917

The Marquis of Anglesey

Henry Cyril Paget, 5th Marquess of Anglesey Bt, (16 June 1875 14 March 1905), styled Lord Paget until 1880 and Earl of Uxbridge between 1880 and 1898, and nicknamed "Toppy", British peer, notable during his short life for squandering his inheritance on a lavish social life and accumulating massive debts. Regarded as the "black sheep" of the family, he was dubbed "the dancing marquess" for his habit of performing "sinuous, sexy, snake-like dances". He converted the chapel at the family's country seat of Plas Newydd, Anglesey, into a 150-seat theatre, named the Gaiety Theatre. Here he took the lead role, opulently costumed, in productions ranging from pantomime and comedy to performances of Oscar Wilde's An Ideal Husband and Shakespeare's Henry V. For three years he took his company on tour around Britain and Europe. Date: 1904
