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 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

Gabrielle Ray (Rotary 3995.H)

I recently purchased this card which is in a sorry state, but given its age one shouldn’t be surprised. I have therefore “retouched” the scan to produce an improved picture which is more pleasing to the eye. This is an interesting card with Ellaline Terriss asking the question “Gabrielle Ray, where art thou?” Miss Ray can be seen up side down as a fairy in the trees above.

The third image is a better quality card recently purchased and the fourth shows Miss Ray in the tree.
