Sepia Saturday 110 - In the Movies.....

This story and the photograph have a tentative connection to the theatre.

Second lady from the left is Lesley Ramage with her father John.
Lady on the far right is Nehru's sister.
Taken Bombay 1957. Lady on the far left is called Jane.
The original of the photograph is with my mother in law. Almost 20 years ago my father in law showed us a huge set of photographs. At the time we videoed them. Then in the Autumn of 2010 I transferred the video to DVD. The transfer appeared to have been successful and in further experimentation mode I played the DVD on my laptop and took a photo from the screen. This is one of those photographs.

Lesley Ramage is the first cousin of my late father in law. She had a career as an actress. I have no further details on her career or her stage name. 

Taking part in Sepia Saturday


  1. An interesting brush with fame!

  2. The photo has truly been digitised. Looks an interesting event.

  3. The distortion in the photo gives it a lot of character.

  4. How the other half live, eh?

  5. There is a likeness to Grace Kelly in the photo.

  6. Wow, what a great blog that you have here. Thanks for following me, and I am now your newest follower.

    You guys were creative in how you saved the photos. I enjoyed seeing your family.

    Take care and Happy S.S.,

    Kathy M.

  7. Transferring from VHS can be very time consuming (I speak from experience), but often well worth the effort. What a pity you don’t know more about Lesley; it seems she knew some famous people.

  8. Looks like they were having quite a posh evening.

  9. Interesting photo...and, yes, the theatre connection is there. Lesley seems to have an actor's flair with her lovely gown and beautiful smile.

  10. Agree with Bob, I thought of Grace Kelly too.

  11. Oh they sure knew how to have a good time in that era and look so stunning at the same time!

  12. Lovely Lesley! Sometimes it's especially fun to have just a tidbit of information and leave the rest to the imagination.
