Non-stop ! The famous Windmill Theatre girls work hard, but they know how to play
The famous Windmill Theatre girls work hard, but they know how to play when they get a brief break between shows. London's own beach by the Thames at Tower Bridge is near enough to the theatre for the girls to change into swimsuits and enjoy a brief breather with hundreds of Londoners who are enjoying a spell of early summer. Picture shows left-to-right Josephine Hamlett, Jill Anstey, Anita D'Ray, Avril Amos, Toni Leighton and Mavis Greenaway springing on the beach as the Tower Bridge go up in the background.
