One of the many stars featured on this poster for the Canterbury Theatre is Lydia Yeamans. Born in Australia to a theatrical family, she made her debut on stage with her mother and sisters when she was still a child. She appeared as a comedy singer in variety theatre in New York and came to England in 1866. Lydia Yeamans later married her manager Fred Titus, and in the 1900s appeared in many Hollywood films such as 'Upstream', 'The Lily' and 'Queenie'.
