Ladies Day at the Races 1976

Dame Edna at Ascot races Ladies Day, by John Timbers 1976.

Since its Cup Week here in Melbourne and everyone has toddled off to the races…To celebrate Ladies Day at Flemington today we just had to share this image of Dame Edna in all her glory.

Can anyone help us identify her stunningly dressed companion… surely that’s not Madge? Perhaps its Lillian Frank under that space helmet?
