Third image, stuck on the back of the photo in green, possibly of interest (need to enlarge or save, get it round the right way, or read it sideways!!)

Mentions the sister.

Well that's interesting Jon.  The year appears to be Jan 16 1968 or 69.

As far as I can tell it says:-

Lovely TV and movie actress Ann Stephens will be Inspector Mark Baker's? innocent foil on Saber or Baber at Sea to be seen via the KBC?-TV network on Sunday January 26th 5.30 pm (EST).

Ann, who has relatives living in Washington D.C. (an aunt? who is married to a U.S. Government official) only gets to visit them via their television set as Ann has appeared on many TV filmed series shown in the United States.

Her sister, ----- Stephens, will get to see their relatives in person when she arrives in the U.S. as the winner in a recently held beauty contest.

I've not put the sister's first name as it is likely that she is still alive.

So if that date is contemporary with the information, Ann was still alive then.

Hi GG
I think it's 1958.
Both sisters were child actors (or actresses!), appearing together. I must have missed that!

Well it looks as though Ann's sister travelled to New York in 1954 as a student. 

So who could the aunt? have been that was married to a US government official?  Was that on the father's side or mother's side?

Ann comes over 9 Jun 1958 on the SS Pres. Monroe, from Leghorn, Italy to NYC and again 20 Apr 1959 from England on the Parthia.  In both cases, the British passport # matches and her place of residence is listed as 633 15th st. N W, Washington, D.C.  Could that be the home of her Aunt?
