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 – Bournemouth Guardian – Saturday 12th June 1920

BOSCOMBE HIPPODROME.

Undoubtedly the chief attraction at the Boscombe Hippodrome this week was the appearance of Miss Gabrielle Ray, the famous London musical comedy star, assisted by Leslie Barker and a dainty chorus of children. Miss Ray has an extensive repertoire and her varied selections, coupled with the dainty singing and dancing of herself and her partner, formed a very pleasing item. A really clever turn was introduced with by Takio with his £1,000 film in sounds, mimicry of wild animals and birds. As the pictures of animals came on the screen Takio imitated their calls and noises, and when his performance came to an end he was rewarded by loud applause. Ernie Ream, with his baby grand, was very good in songs and delivered some very amusing patter. Dusty Rhodes, who is an old favourite with the Boscombe audiences, appeared and sang some funny songs. Werds Bros. were daring comedy acrobats, and they introduced the highest fall ever done on stage. Adams and Lee, the comedy jugglers, were also very clever.

Gabrielle Ray – Postcards by the Millions – Christchurch Times – Saturday 21st July 1906

 

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 post cards. He finds that Miss Marie Studholme comes first, Miss Gabrielle Ray a close second, the two sisters, Misses Zena and Phyllis Dare, practically tie for third place, while Miss Ellaline Terries and Miss Gertie Millar are great favourites. Post Office officials computed that 430,090,000 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
