Eglevsky and Alonso were dancing with Ballet Theater a bit earlier than 1948, including Giselle. Nora Kaye was also dancing at BT, in a different rep primarily, at the same time.
Here's a NY Times review from 1946. Note that Maria Tallchief was the Myrthe. [Edited to note that atm711 corrects this in her post below. This was NOT Maria.]
Alonso, Eglevsky, and Markova danced together, also in 1946. Here's a review of Les Sylphides.
Possibly this photo (obviously a studio shot) is just a stylized representation of "ballet" but not of a particular work.

A correction--- Marjorie Tallchief as Myrtha---Maria was not a member of the Company at the time--she was with the Ballet Russe

Cristian: I didn't know you needed to be a subscriber merely to access a link posted BY a subscriber. Sorry about that. The review, by John Martin, provides a glimpse into a time when she was a young dancer relatively new to Giselle.
