About this work

Description

Popular music-hall songs were often publicised on postcards which featured the lyrics with some illustration, either artist drawn or photographic. This unusual card presents a combination of both, with additional comedy added by using photomontage to make one of the lovers a pantomime Dame. This song was a major commercial success for George Lashwood (1863-1942)
