‘Digital collage using a vintage theatre poster for the musical comedy The Earl and the Girl and several pieces of ephemera in my collection. Produced by William Greet, it was first staged in 1903 at the Adelphi Theatre, London, before transferring to the Lyric Theatre in 1904. The show was also produced on Broadway in 1905 with Eddie Foy in the lead. The book was by the then well-known actor-manager Seymour Hicks, with music by Ivan Caryll and lyrics by Percy Greenbank.’

This is a digital collage from 2012 in which I used a vintage theatre poster for the musical comedy The Earl and the Girl as my starting point and layered it with several pieces of ephemera in my theatre collection, including a black & white postcard of the actor-manager Sir Seymour Hicks.

The above is not the postcard I used but another one for sale at my First Night Vintage store on Zazzle. Why? Because I don’t seem to have uploaded the other one for sale!

The Earl and the Girl was produced by William Greet and first staged in 1903 at the Adelphi Theatre, London, before transferring to the Lyric Theatre in 1904. The show was also produced on Broadway in 1905 with Eddie Foy in the lead. The book was by Hicks, with music by Ivan Caryll and lyrics by Percy Greenbank.

Quite a number of our friends are pregnant. Our next-door neighbour is also due to give birth at the end of the month so I am surrounded by expectant talk. A little synchronicity has been at play and I’ve just sold a print of this charming photograph of proud parents.

In this instance, the parents are actors — or should I say were, since both are long since dead. Seymour Hicks (1871-1949) and Ellaline Terriss (1871-1971) gaze fondly at their daughter, Betty, who was born in 1904.

Take care and keep laughing!
