Madge Crichton (Milton No 46)

Madge Crichton (1881 – 1919) I believe that this card comes from the musical by Paul Rubens, Three Little Maids The story concerns three simple curate’s daughters who go to London to earn their livings serving tea in a Bond Street tea shop. They become the romantic rivals of three ladies of fashion but succeed because of their freshness.

The musical opened at the Apollo Theatre in London on 10th May 1902 and later transferred to the Prince of Wales Theatre, running for a total of 348 performances. Edna May, Delia Mason and Lily Elsie (on tour) each starred as Edna Branscombe, the older sister, Madge Crichton played the part of Ada Branscombe .
