Encyclopedia Sabrina (Norma Ann Sykes)

Do YOU have any Sabrina stuff?

Sabrina in a turtleneck!


including the Trafalgar Square Walkabout series

I think some of the outdoor "walkabout" shots were taken in Rome in November 1958.
I know some were in Trafalgar Square around 1955 - especially the ones with the little suitcase..
Same turtleneck, however!

Anyone who was there, I'd love some advice!

Even overseas in England, they are starting to return to their senses.
What does their national sensation, the fabulous Sabrina choose when she really wants to look glamorous?
Take a look and see for yourselves.

Below: You can tell she's in love with that dress.

Important shots for two reasons...

Sabrina on a walkabout
1. An important picture in Spick & Span 1957 that gives some context to some of the mysterious shots on this page. It seems the event was a photo shoot by American Russ Meyer. The S&S article also features shots from the "Lace" collection , and the Flannelette series so they might be Meyer shots too. It must have been a very busy day for Sabby!

2. Important, too, for Terry who wrote on 3 May 2008...

"I was amazed and delighted to find a photograph of me with Sabrina at a photoshoot in Trafalgar Square around 1955. In the picture I am the airman on the left, in the peaked cap, with my friend in the beret. It means a lot to me as I lost all photos taken while in the RAF. If Sabrina sees this e-mail, I would love to hear from her, as we were born in the same year. But I understand she can't reply to everyone. I wish her very good health and happiness. - Best wishes, Terry F"

In November 2018, I found an uncropped version of the pic above. It shows Sabrina on a boat, and the caption says "Sabrina... strange choice to appear before the Queen at next month's Royal Variety Performance in London" - placing the pic before 5 Nov 1956.
