Covers by Ada Peacock

 

Items on this page were donated by the family of Mrs. Yvonne Snell in her memory, and by her brother Gerald Creagh Brown who was Gerry Peacock's Godson.  The father of Gerald Brown attended Heatherley's Art School in London with Ada and her husband Gerry Peacock.  They left London for Buenos Aires so that Gerry could manage an advertising agency there.  They only intended to remain for a couple of years, but the political situation meant that they would be unable to bring their money out, so they remained there for the rest of their lives.

In addition to designing the menu covers for Moore-McCormack Lines, Ada was the costume designer for Charles B. Cochran who produced big musicals.
