Just By The Angel At Islington part 01
Composer: Lloyd, Arthur
Medium: Lithograph, coloured
Arthur Lloyd was one of the 'Lion Comiques', a group of entertainers who parodied the fashionable 'man about town'. Lloyd was a very popular entertainer because of his intimate and friendly style. He observed people very well and personalised all of his songs by basing them on real characters. These song lyrics,
'Just by the Angel at Islington, Close by the clock that always is wrong,'
use a local landmark that the audience would have recognised thus involving them in his performance.
