This leaflet, featuring a portrait of Fannie Leslie is advertising a production at the Strand Theatre. Fannie (or sometimes Fanny) Leslie was a comic singer and later professional actress who married the theatre manager Walter Gooch. Interestingly, Clement Scott, the playwright of ‘Jack In The Box’, became the ‘Dramatic Critic’ at the Daily Telegraph and was the man who coined the name Poppyland for the area around Cromer in Norfolk.
