The British music hall and radio comics sign in black ink with their stage names added
Signature: "Elsie Waters/(Gert)/Doris Waters/(Daisy)", in black ink, 3x1¾. English sisters ELSIE WATERS (1893-1990) and DORIS WATERS (1904-1978) formed the music hall and radio comedy team of Gert and Daisy. Their popularity peaked during World War II, when the starred on the BBC Workers' Playhouse and in three feature films, beginning with Gert and Daisy's Weekend (1942). In popular culture, the Gert & Daisy pairing was applied to soccer players, and even to gangsters (the Kray twins). The sisters had a TV series in 1959, but their routines did not transfer well to that medium. They were honored as OBE's in 1946. Adhesive residue on verso. Soiled. Ink smeared on left margin. Otherwise, fine condition.
