Do you remember Miriam Gros?

In the summer of 1959, the secretary of the Grupo de Criadores de Lidia of the Sindicato Nacional de Ganaderia, D. Manuel Garcia Aleas, commented that:

"last Sunday an English girl, Miriam Gros, was here. She always turns up. She even has a carnet (ID) from the Montepio de Toreros. An amazing case of aficion. She spends all the time training here in the Casa de Campo. She thinks women will be able to fight on foot. Imagine that!"

So, we repeat, does anyone remember aficionada practica Miriam Gros?
