EDITORS COMMENTS
Mrs George Hay Whigham's Exquisite Ascot Party in 1932: A Glimpse into the Glamour and Elegance of the Roaring Thirties This enchanting photograph captures a moment in time from the fashionable world of the 1930s, as a group of stylish friends gathered for a memorable house party during Ascot Week at the residence of Mrs George Hay Whigham. The image, taken in 1932, portrays an assemblage of elegant society figures, including, from left to right, Mr. C. Moore, Miss Margaret Whigham (later the Duchess of Argyll), Mr. Charles Sweeny (who Margaret would marry the following year), Mrs. Hollway, Mr. Quintin Gilbey, Miss Vaughan, and Sir Robert Throckmorton. The scene is set against the backdrop of the historic Ascot Racecourse, where the annual horse racing event had long been synonymous with the British social season. The group, dressed in the height of 1930s fashion, exudes an air of sophistication and charm, reflecting the opulence and elegance of the era. Margaret Whigham, the daughter of the hostess, is a vision in a chic, form-fitting dress with a low neckline and a striking hat adorned with a feather. Her future husband, Charles Sweeny, looks dashing in a well-tailored suit and bow tie. The other guests, too, are impeccably dressed, their attire reflecting the fashion trends of the time. This photograph serves as a captivating window into the world of the social elite during the Roaring Thirties, a time when people came together to celebrate life, fashion, and the joy of socializing. The image is a testament to the enduring allure of the past and the timeless appeal of a well-hosted party.
