This vintage real photo postcard features Miss Gladys Guy (1888-1968) as she appeared in the pantomime, “Dick Whittington” (1909) at the New Theatre, Cardiff, England. The actress is a pretty woman. She has a wonderful smile. She is wearing a terrific hat; the large feather really adds to her appearance. I find her long gloves interesting. Why is there a hole in her glove, just under her thumb. It appears to be part of the design of the glove but I wonder about it’s purpose. Gladys Guy was an English actress and singer. Her father was a violinist. She began her career in about 1905 and between then and 1917 she appeared in a number of successful London musical productions. At times, she served as an understudy to both Gabrielle Ray and Phyllis Dare. In 1912 she married George Augustus Guy (1851-1939), an actor who later joined the Indian Army. He rose in the ranks until he became a lieutenant colonel. Miss Guy’s career ended with the birth of her son. Interestingly, the son followed his parents into acting and became quite well known . His name was Basil Henson. This postcard was published by the Metropole Studios in Cardiff. Cardiff is a port city on the south coast of Wales. The postcard is part of the “Panto Series” (Panto=Pantomime). The photographer was C. Corn. This postcard is in very good condition (see scans).
