Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
Pat Stewart, the Tiller girl in the polka dot dress, who was famously captured by Bert Hardy in Blackpool, has died aged 83 years. Hardy's photograph was a Picture Post front cover in 1951. The picture was taken by Hardy on a Brownie camera to show that great photographs were created by the photographer rather than the camera. Stewart had to assert her claim to be the subject. She will be buried in the dress that made her famous.
