Photographing Suzanne Farrington's letters

The research team captured images of letters explaining the provenance of the dresses held by The Royal Albert Memorial Museum (RAMM). These letters were written by Vivien Leigh's daughter Suzanne Farrington in 1976 to her aunt Dorothy Holman, who was the founder and curator of Topsham Museum. Suzanne Farrington offered the broadtail dress to Dorothy Holman for her Museum, and later offered the Harald evening dress. Both eventually came to RAMM.
