Merrie England by Basil Hood

Promotional postcard for Merrie England by Basil Hood; music Edward German. First produced at the Savoy Theatre, 2nd April 1902.

Flier for the Hastings and St. Leonards Operatic and Dramatic Society, at the Gaiety Theatre, Hastings 18th April 1912, but the image would almost certainly have already been used for a poster for a professional company. Date: circa 1912
