Everyone likes to be entertained - in the theatre, the cinema or your own home. This book is about a family of professional entertainers during the peak years of the British music hall and equally popular circus. The story, painstakingly researched by Colin Dale, describes the achievements of the family in the days of inconvenient transport, a political and historical setting in the hey-day of the British Empire, and during three wars and their aftermath. The strains and gains of peripatetic lives are outlined and the effect of the decline of the music hall and circus had in the 20th century.

Condition: Very good. Small bump to bottom right of book at back. (Click on the above image to see close-up of the book you will be buying).
