In this elegant photograph, Miss Margaret Whigham, later known as the Duchess of Argyll, is seen gracefully posing with her proud parents, Mr. and Mrs. George Hay Whigham, at a grand ball held at their residence, Queens Hill, near Ascot in the summer of 1931. The young Margaret, who was crowned Deb of the Year in 1930, was described by The Tatler as having an alluring complexion that was the envy of all and sundry. The image captures the opulence and sophistication of the 1930s social scene, with Margaret's stunning gown and her parents' formal attire adding to the grandeur of the occasion. The elegant decor of the ballroom, adorned with flowers and crystal chandeliers, further accentuates the glamour of the event. Margaret's rise to prominence in society began in earnest during this period, and this photograph serves as a testament to her beauty and poise. Her parents, Mr. and Mrs. George Hay Whigham, are equally captivating, with their refined appearance and proud expressions as they look on at their daughter. This photograph is a precious piece of history, offering a glimpse into the world of high society in the 1930s. It is a reminder of a bygone era, where grand balls and elegant soirees were the norm, and where the pursuit of beauty and style was a cherished pastime.
