Here is a great photo of Walt being sold on ebay. The caption says that the woman is actress Rose Strada [who looks a lot like Lillian, in fact!]. It seems to have been taken at a polo match. It is dated November 11, 1937.

[UPDATE: Diane Disney Miller confirmed that the woman on the photo is indeed Lillian Disney, as we all suspected].

I believe this actress is actually Rose (or Rosa) Stradner, then a recent arrival from Austria to co-star opposite Edward G. Robinson in MGM's THE LAST GANGSTER (1937). Stradner appeared in a few more Hollywood movie, and later married Joseph L. Mankiewicz.
