Also known as - Ann Stuart
Ann was a pretty little elf-like housewife from Scotland about whom we know absolutely nothing.
In most of her six appearances she is outdoors; in all of them, she wore black seamed stockings. Scrumptious!
Six appearances but my guess is only two shoots – the ironing sequences in Span 141 and Beautiful Britons 128, and the sequences of her doing a spot of gardening in her undies and patent leather shoes (as one does) in Span 133, Spick 142 (that shoot is indoors but she is wearing the same gear and looking out of the window at the same garden), Spick 148 − and the single photo from Spick 194 (in which she is known as Ann Stuart). So the chances are there were only two shoots − and possibly even just one, with a change of clothes.
Yet again, as we delve through the annals of Town and Country Publications, there is an element of mystery about this little Celtic pixie. She appeared five times between September 1965 (in that month’s editions of both Spick and Span) and July 1966, a period of eight months; indeed, in the Beautiful Britons of that month, Ann was one of the ten models ToCo selected for readers to exercise their “talent for beauty-spotting” in a competition called Pick of the Pin-Ups – so they evidently thought highly of her. And yet she then disappeared from sight before popping up again 3½ years later in a single photo from an old shoot – and under a different name.
What happened? She was a cracker – vivacious, full of fun, pretty as a picture and a beautiful figure. In other words, she had everything expected of a ToCo girl. So why did she disappear off the radar? Angry boyfriend? Photographer crossed the line?
24 photos is what we were given of the enchanting Ann Milligan when it should have been 240. Very frustrating – and very disappointing.
