Ecky Thump! Was Elsie Tanner a Knitwear Model?

The following photo is taken from an English Knitting Book circa 1945.
It illustrates a pattern for a beaded scarf.
Coronation Street fans and Tony Blair, I ask you...

Is this a photo of Pat Phoenix?
Ms Phoenix portrayed the glamorous Elsie Tanner for over 20 years. She wore a similar hat to this one when she married Alan Howard (when their characters were wed- I don't know about their offscreen do), and also to Emily and Ernest Bishop's wedding. Correct me if I'm wrong.

I would knit anything that might give me an ounce of Elsienish.

I read what happened when you posted this question on Ravelry. Oh, Morgan I'm so sorry! You can't expect other people to be sane. lol
