Ethyl Hayden and George Robey (Rotary 1176 A)

I found this card on eBay and bought it because I like the perambulator , I had no idea whom the actress and actor were, thanks to my trusty actress book the mother was Mrs Robey, (Ethel Hayden) and Australian actress (1878-1954) her husband, Sir George Edward Wade, CBE known professionally as George Robey (20/09/1896 – 29/11/1954) an English comedian, singer and actor in musical theatre, who became known as one of the greatest music hall performers of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Their two children Eileen and Edward. The post mark is 2nd December 1903 and corresponds with a similar picture published in The Sketch on 2nd September 1903
