    Pictures Of Lily!

    Lillie Langtry (13 October 1853 12 February 1929), born Emilie Charlotte Le Breton, was a highly successful British actress born on the island of Jersey. A renowned beauty, she was nicknamed the 'Jersey Lily' and had a number of prominent lovers, including the future King Edward VII.

    The fictitious character Irene Adler, who bested Sherlock Holmes when he sought an incriminating photograph of her and a European monarch, is thought to have been based upon Langtry.

    Langtry was also the subject of The Who's 1967 recording, 'Pictures of Lily' about a young man infatuated by her image. A line from the song states 'She's been dead since 1929'."

    Isn't she a ceauty??

    Yes, very much so! I think the legendary Judge Roy Bean was also deeply infatuated with her.

    She's a little androgynous looking in this photo although she's obviously very attractive. It'd be fun to go back in time to meet these famously charismatic people.

    Hey! You know me ... I would give a gazillion bucks (if I had it) to go back to the twenties & thirties!
