Walter Freer in Glasgow - late 19th Century

from My Life and Memories, page 84:

Harry Linn was the quaintest comic of them all. He was over six feet in height and very thin. His voice broke in the low register and squeaked in the upper. Yet he was always a draw. He made up his own songs, and, like [W. H.] Lannigan, had his choir of youngsters.
