Jean Court in Bristol - in the beginning of the 1930's
from Living in the lane, page 8:
The local dancing teacher […] Mrs Barnes’ daughter took part in a concert on one occasion in the Parish Hall. She wore short black pants black tights and carried a top hat and cane while she sang “Walking my Baby back home”. I thought she put it over marvellously. Later on she too became a dancing teacher and the Peggy Barnes dancers appeared in every pantomime, Also at the concert we saw magic lantern slides and even an old Charlie Chaplin film. [My sister] Mary was asked to sing a carol solo and her voice sounded very small and sweet.
