Pamela Minchin photographed on the Isle of Wight, wearing a Fortnum and Mason bathing suit. Parkinson said of this image “When I pulled that picture out of the soup it confirmed to me for the rest of my life that I had to be a photographer. I was absolutely amazed by the magic of it.” Harper's Bazaar, July 1939, page 24.
