Eric Knowles Comments
Kathleen Parsons and Walter Lamonby were responsible for an extensive series of fashionable ladies and dancers modelled during the 1930's. The company introduced this range to offer direct competition to those being imported by Goldscheider and Katzhutte and in the case of 'Rio Rita' in my opinion Kathleen Parsons has equalled anything offered by Goldscheider and eclipsed those produced by Katzhutte.
