Signature: "Best Wishes/Sandy Powell", 6x4 album leaf. Also signed on verso: "Toyo/Japanese Juggler/1936". Arthur Albert "SANDY" POWELL (1900-1982) was a popular English music hall comedian of the 1920s, often appearing in company with singer Gracie Fields. Many of his skits involved a puppet which would fall apart on stage. He proved equally popular on radio in the 1930s, known by the catch phrase, "Can you hear me, Mother?", and appeared in a few films late in life. Powell was the first comedian to recognize the potential of record sales, recording 85 comedy routines on 78 rpm discs between 1929 and 1942. His "Lost Policeman" routine sold a million copies. Powell was honored with an MBE in 1975. The variety shows offered by the English music halls offered diverse entertainment, and Toyo the juggler was probably on the bill. Light surface creases. Corners worn and creased. Light surface creases. Soiled, esp. on outer margins. Left edge notched and frayed. Otherwise, fine condition.
