VAUDEVILLE MEMORIES [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 25 March 1921
VAUDEVILLE MEMORIES No . 6—MABEL BERRA We have with us today the sweetvoiced Mabel Berra . I shot this snapshot near the stage door of Shea s Theatre , Toronto , In the year oh , well , look at the style of her coat and skirt and judge the date for yourself . - I want to testify that Miss Berra s charm of manner and her sweetness of disposition made her one of the most popular members of a bill that stuck together for many weeks and enjoyed many pleasant reunions . I recall one evening when Horace Golden , the magician , produced rabbits , pigeons and every other imaginable thing from the pockets of Mabels rather spacious coat and skirt which she wears in the snapshot , but Mabel was not satisfied and defied the resourceful Horace to produce a tiger or an elephant from under her hat .
