Alice Maud Chase in Portsmouth - 21 June, 1887

from The memoirs of Alice Maud Chase, page 18:

Now 1887 was a very important year. Our Queen celebrated her 50thanniversary and nobody talked of anything else but the Jubilee. It fell upon my seventh birthday and I remember all about it.


The comic song of the day was one with a chorus which ran “My wife she’s gone mad about the Jubilee. Oh the Jubilee, Oh the Jubilee!” The boys roared it in the streets, and [my sister] Ruby and I roared with the best and enjoyed ourselves hugely.
