Great English music hall star comedian, billed as “The Prime Minister of Mirth”.

Robey, famous for his robust humour, bowler hat, long black collarless frockcoat, hooked stick and thickly painted eyebrows, later made a name for himself as a Shakespearean actor, appearing to great effect as Sir John Falstaff in Henry V (1944).

This is a very fine vintage sepia photograph (6.75" x 5.25"), signed and inscribed ("To Babs, with best wishes, George Robey") in dark blue ink. In very good condition.
This is the first time I've seen this particular image.
