Oct . 17 , 1911 . ) Vardon , Perry and Wilber , three musicians and singers , had a unique experience last evening . In travelling from Birmingham the trio had the misfortune to lose the whole of their baggage with the exception of their musical Instruments , and as a result of this they went through the daring experiment of appearing on the stage in ordinary street attire ,- and without accompaniment , the management appealing for the Indulgence of the audience during their performance . They were an immense success , and were repeatedly recsiled , the audience , if anything , being over indulgent , and quite half a dozen songs were given by Those 3 Boys and well given , too .

IN LONDON TOWN [Newspaper Article] — Player — 29 December 1911
IN LONDON TOWN By O . H . KURTZ , SO Walcot Square , London , S . E . Now comes the generous Christmas season of burning yule log and fireside cheer , of mistletoe and many berried holly . As the threatened holiday postal strike is off , your fat special number , got out for the sleigh of Santa Claus , should get around London on time . Now doll matinees and theatrical feasting schemes are being boomed for the poor , and even Thamesside embankment sleepers will get the wrinkles taken out of their stomachs . English carol singers have already been in this square . Practically all the West End shops will close midday the Saturday preceding Christmas , and not open till Wednesday morning . In England Christmas maintains its churchly traditions ; the holiday has its original meaning— holy day . No shows are given , and artists lose the day s salary except by grace of the management . Festivities rise to high tide the day after Christmas , Boxing Day , which is not as it sounds a day sac...
