Miss Lily Elsie


Said to be Gabrielle Ray, Lily Elsie and friend in 1912.

Dated 1913, however the style looks more late teens early 20s


The Gaiety Theatre – 1932

"Miss Lily Elsie enchanted the audience last night with her portrayal of Princess Soo Soo in George Edwardes oriental fantasy farce at the Royal Strand Theatre. On her first entrance the audience were heard to audibly gasp not only at her beauty but also her acting and singing. The fact she packaged her talents and presented herself with an oriental fashion added to the delight. Her rendition of the songs ‘But Yesterday’  drew more gasps as the silver lined notes soared up to the gods effortlessly. Her predecessor in the roles was Beatrice Edwards, Beatrice who? The only name on the lips of patrons as they left the theatre for their carriages was Lily Elsie"
