A rare signature from this early period in 1948. (She was only 16 years old when she signed this autograph). From the extensive autograph collection of Edna Winter of London SE16. Thought to have been an obsessive collector and hoarder, Edna amassed a massive collection of Entertainment / Film / Political and Literary autographs during the 1940-50s. She kept a detailed diary of who / when and where she obtained her autographs from ; it would appear mostly by writing to theatres / home addresses and the major A-list London hotels of the period. It is unknown how she knew which celebrity was staying where and at what time, but almost all autographs (very usefully) have venues and dates included with them ; some are also dedicated to her. This one 13th November 1948. AFTAL Dealer No13 and UACC RD Memorabilia UK COA.
