Neil Libbert on Jayne Mansfield

As you might remember I wrote about Neil Libberts exhibition a few months ago. Here are his memories of Jayne:
“She came up to Blackpool to turn on the illuminations in 1959 and at the same time there was a TUC conference, which I was covering. She came into the Imperial hotel with her Chihuahua, which is on her lap in the photo, and we asked her if she would mind coming over and sitting with the delegates and she was only too happy. The man on the left is Ted Hill from the boilermakers union, the man behind is Morgan Phillips, general secretary of the TUC and the man on the right is Bill Carron from the Amalgamated Engineering Union, so it’s rather a heavy bunch of political figures sitting with her. It was used on the front page of the Guardian the following day”.
