Lily Elsie – The Tatler – 1916

Lily Elsie - The Tatler - 16th August 1916


Mrs Ian Bullough (Miss Lily Elsie)

A new photograph of the actress who has a claim to being considered one of the greatest public favourites of her day as she appeared in a special performance of “The Admirable Crichton” at the Coliseum. Miss Lily Elsie, as she is best known to her public, has virtually retired from the stage, and only appears for charitable purposes or at entertainments in aid of the war funds. She devoted the whole of her earnings in “Mavourneen” at His Majesty’s to the Red Cross, and she has also appeared at several “war matinees” since. Her husband is serving with his regiment in France.
