Edouin, Willie in The Girl from Kay's

Promotional flyer for The Girl from Kay's Promotional postcard for The Girl from Kays by Owen Hall; music Ivan Caryll and Cecil Cook. First produced at the Apollo Theatre, London 15th November 1902. The original London production, from 1902 to 1903, played for a long run of 432 performances and was followed by provincial tours. A successful New York run of 223 performances began in 1903, and successful Australian runs followed. The plot is triggered when a wife sees her husband kissing a shop girl who has delivered her new hat from Kay's hat shop. This is a postcard in a series depicting stage personalities, Willie Edouin is shown as the American millionaire, the part he created in this show - caption: Im Hoggenheimer. As so often in productions of the period, the American millionaire is a comic character, but in this case the audience is asked to laugh with rather than at him. Date: 1904

Nine hospital patients in Winter Garden, Quex Park

Nine hospital patients sitting in the Winter Garden at Quex Park. The Winter Garden was a large conservatory which stood between the drawing room of Quex House and the buildings of the Powell-Cotton Museum, linking the two. During the First World War it served as the VAD Hospital Mess. The men are all wearing the hospital patient's uniform of 'hospital blues', which was blue serge jacket and trousers. Several men are smoking cigarettes. Most of the men are wearing carpet slippers. These were made for VAD Hospitals by local War Supply Depots, for the men to use indoors. The Quex Park VAD Hospital opened on 15 October 1914 and closed on 31 January 1919. The hospital was run by Kent/178, the Birchington Detachment. The Commandant was Hannah Powell-Cotton (1881-1964), wife of Major Percy HG Powell-Cotton (1866-1940) of Quex Park, founder of the Powell-Cotton Museum. Major Powell-Cotton was the VAD Transport Officer for the Isle of Thanet area, responsible for organising the transport of patients from the stations to the local hospitals. Date: circa 1916
