Miss Kitty Colyer played Cinderella at the Broadway Theatre Deptford in December 1920. A music hall singer and comedian of the 1920's Miss Kitty Colyer, was a well-known comedienne and dancer, and started her professional career at eleven years old She continued singing and dancing until she was eighteen, and then married. She left the stage for a few years. But an idle life did not suit her, and she said that during her absence from the stage she suffered from melancholia. She undertook all kinds of dancing, but gave special attention to acrobatic, toe, buck, and national dancing. Some of her most successful numbers were ''Good-bye, Jenny,'' ''My little snow house,'' ''Popping around,'' and ''Oh, Dolly.''

Hi Andy - Do you know where I could find any information on Creek Road School 1900-1910? I am researching the life of a Swindon born suffragette by the name of Edith New who taught at the school 1906-1908. Thanks for your help.

Hi Frances,

The only source I can point you too is the Lewisham Local Study Archives. Ive looked but can find nothing on the internet. It's funny to see your research subject Edith New was born in Swindon. I lived in Swidon for some 40 yrs. I will keep and eye out for you should anything crop up

Best regards

Andy
