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?'

Gabrielle Ray – Fleetwood Chronicle – Tuesday 5th August 1913



People generally foretold a happy union when Mr. Eric Loder, one of the richest young men about town, married Miss Gabrielle Ray, familiarly known as “Gabs.” But things did not go with the expected smoothness, unfortunately, and now Gabrielle Ray has been granted a decree of restitution of conjugal rights. The pair were married in the March last year, and were for some time happy, but a mutual lady, is said to have caused the trouble which led to the court. Gabs is an old Gaiety favourite and was one of Mr. Edwardes’s best finds. By no means a good singer, on accounts of a startlingly squeaky voice, she was the finest dancer musical comedy has seen, or is likely to see for some time to come. Of a type of beauty which is helped by the camera, she has probably been more photographed than any other woman living; in England and in remote corners of the earth. Perhaps she is best known in bee pees as the Millais child in “Bubbles,” but in hundreds of poses her photographs on postcards have sold literally by the million. It is hinted that Gabrielle Ray may yet be seen at the Gaiety again, though she affects a desire to retire to the country and live a comfortable, dolce far niente life. (Pleasant relaxation in carefree idleness)
