paper

Copy of a B&W photograph showing Amy Mollison (nee Johnson) arriving at Sewerby Hall with Councillor A.E.Fligg, to open the hall on 1st June 1936. The fur coat that Amy is wearing cost £1000 and was made of musquash (muskrat), a species of North American water rat. It was made in Paris and presumably given to her by the businessman Francois Dupre. He was providing Amy with free accommodation at the time, in his Parisian hotel, hoping that she would start a relationship with him. She never did.
