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.
Very good. Small bump to bottom right of book at back. (Click on the
