Marin Sonoma Concours d'Elegace

The Spirit of Ecstasy.

Designed by Charles Sykes and carries with it a story about a secret passion between John Walter Edward Douglas-Scott-Montagu and his secret love and the model for the emblem, Eleanor Velasco Thornton.

Eleanor was John Walter's secretary, and their love was to remain hidden. The reason for the secrecy was Eleanor's impoverished social and economic status, which was an obstacle to their love. John-Walter, succumbing to family pressures, married Lady Cecil Victoria Constance, but the secret love affair continued.

Eleanor died on 30 December 1915, going down with the SS Persia, when the ship was torpedoed off Crete by a German submarine. Wikipedia-Spirit_of_Ecstasy
