We are grateful to Mike Short for additional information on this picture.

January 2005 Update - We have been contacted by Mike Short again with more information, he has obtained another copy of this postcard which was posted in Edinburgh in 1907 which could mean that this was from an earlier production than the Adelphi one.

January 2007 Update - We received an email from Roger Kelly about his great grandmother Christina Torrance who attended the Gala Opening Performance of the Kings Theatre Edinburgh on the 8th December 1906 which was a performance of Cinderella with Phyllis Dare and Dan Rolyat.
