We visited The Musical Museum At Kew Bridge today - and had a fantastic time!
It was a joyful surprise to see a gramophone today - my husband's ancestor Albert Edward Court (who was Chief Of Staff at the London Coliseum in 1905 and who married Ruth/Ruby Thrasher/Jezard in 1900 who performed at the Drury Lane Theatre in 1898 and 1899 had Albert Kingsley the painter and Arthur Henry Brooks as their wedding witnesses.
Arthur Henry Brooks was a recording gramophone pioneer - but was a comedy actor prior to this occupation.
Please do you know anymore about Arthur Henry Brooks. Thank you.
We look forward to coming back to museum on 19 March to see your society
