Miss Ryan the publicity agent took us up to the Mechanic's Building in our costumes and we were photographed with the 'dear little things'. They gushed all over us and wanted to know how exciting it was to be 'on the stage.' Then we had to walk around the charity bazaar escorted by the debs. I was bored stiff."

Hear Good, dusty, several album pages detached, some very rusted paperclips, some chipping and wear. Album cover soiled. Bookseller Inventory # a63828
