This vintage undivided real photo postcard features Scottish music hall singer and dancer, Daisy Taylor (1894-1930). This 1912 postcard is remarkable because the reverse of the postcard has a written message from Miss Taylor to a Mrs. Boylan. Daisy tells Mrs. Boylan when she will be arriving in Chatham (England) and she asks if she can sleep in one of Boylan’s spare bedrooms. Perhaps Mrs Boylan managed or owned a boarding house. Daisy had a successful but brief performing career. Unfortunately, she died young. Her cause of death has been described as “a brief illness”. By the time 1913 arrived, Daisy had garnered much attention in London. Soon she was touring all over Great Britain and the United States. She toured South Africa in 1927. She made a number of cylinder recordings for Edison in London. You may hear some of her recordings by doing an internet search. Two of Daisy’s recordings that are easily accessible are “Archie! Archie!” and “Let’s Pretend We’re Married”. The latter title is a duet. You may wonder how I know that Daisy really wrote the message on the card. I can’t guarantee it, but the handwriting seen on the reverse of the postcard, closely matches the handwriting on other postcards that she autographed. (SOLD)
