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?'

Eric Loder – The Liverpool Echo – Friday 8th November 1957

 

A short excerpt from an article about Joseph Maguire’s book “The Sea My Surgery” in which he mentions Mr and Mrs Eric Loder

 

Some cabin stewards and stewardesses cancelled their leave if they knew that passengers like Major and Mrs. Eric Loder were making their annual double trip. The Loders vent half the year in the south of France and the other six months in Florida or Nassau. Year after year they had the same suite and the same servants. They thought so highly of Robson the bedroom steward, that they gave him and his wife a holiday on the Riviera.

Eric Loder – The Tatler – Wednesday 3rd February 1937

NIGHT TIME IN NEW YORK

 

Night time in New York means El Morocco as often as not, this famous restaurant having a popularity second to none just now. Fred Perry was to be seen there not so long ago, in company with Mr. and Mrs. Bertram Weal, whose guest he was for a few days at the Hotel Madison, New York. This was before he started his series of exhibition tennis battles with Ellsworth Vines, the results of which, at the time of writing, are all square after ten matches. Sonia Henje, ex-world skating champion and now a promising film actress, was at El Morocco with that very good-looking young man Tyrone Power. Another good-looker temporarily escaped from Hollywood was Lord Warwick. His dinner guest, Miss Marjorie Gage, is a rich young American air woman. Mr. and Mrs. Eric Loder and Lord Lovelace’s sister, Lady Phyllis Allen, are seen wearing El Morocco scarves, striped to match the decor and favoured by habitués. Mr. Loder’s kinsman, Lord Wakehurst, was lately appointed Governor of New South Wales. Mr. and Mrs. R. B. Foster paid a brief visit to New York last month and patronized all the smartest haunts. Before their fairly recent marriage she was Barbara Newberry, the dancer. Mr. “Bob” Foster is a particularly keen golfer; he plays most of his golf at Sunningdale.
