Gabrielle Ray

'Gabrielle Ray said, 'I am always dancing; I love it! When I don't dance, I sing. What else is there to do?'

Postcards By Millions.

A writer in the “Royal Magazine” has made inquiries with a view to ascertaining whose portrait is most popular with the purchasers of picture postcards. He finds that Miss Marie Studholme comes first, with Miss Gabrielle Ray a close second, the two sisters, Misses Zena and Phyllis Dare, practically tie for third place, while Miss Ellaline Terriss  and Miss Gertie Millar are great favourites. Post Office officials computed that 450,000,000 postcards were posted in Great Britain during 1903. A count was kept at several summer resorts last year, and during June, July, and August the weekly average of cards posted at Blackpool alone was 215,000. In the first week of August the total reached 300,000.
