The Women of SHADO

Clare Cross
This post was updated on .
Here's an interesting photo that I'd not seen before today.  Obviously 'A' is in the middle, but I don't recognise the other two.  I am tempted to say that I think the picture must have been taken down near the embankment on the north side of the Thames and that beyond the cranes in the background, we can see Big Ben.  That would be my guess anyway.

Yes, I've seen that photo posted on Facebook before, but I have no idea what the source of it is.  Perhaps shot for a magazine / newspaper article?

I'll guess that the other two girls are models, although I had briefly wondered if the blonde one was Rosemary Donnelly, but I don't think she is.  Probably a promo shoot for either the series itself or the fashions.

I'm sure they got quite a few stares from people wondering what was going on.

Great shot, thanks for sharing it.

Regarding this photo, I found 4 others on MirrorPix, all appearing to be taken on the same day.  Doing some more research, these were taken in Birmingham on 15 September 1970, for a photo to appear in the 16 September issue of The Birmingham Post.  UFO premiered in parts of the UK on this date.  Here is what appeared in the newspaper (which I also found online)

And here is another one from that series of photos.  Hard to find unwatermarked, high-resolution versions of the others:

Interesting to read that the clothes would soon be on sale in shops. I don't think that ever happened, and if it did they didn't sell many.
