Alexandra Mills

A Group Photograph from the Hardmans' Wedding in 1932. The little girl is Pauline Alexandra Mills, Margaret's half-sister

Margaret's half sister, Pauline Alexandra Mills was born on 11th September 1928. There are many photographs of her in the collection, both as a child and later as a model for both of the Hardmans. She was an aspiring actress, studying at RADA and later gaining work at the Playhouse including being understudy to Valerie Hanson in one of the productions. Many of the photos of her in the collection were for her acting portfolio and show her in various costumes and guises, such as Primavera and Drudgery below.
