Hello, Does anybody know if any of the women shown here is Judith Wogan? She was with the Theatre till the late 1920s. She was my great-aunt, never met - would love to know! Thank you. Comment left on 05 July 2017 at 19:53 by Kit Grindstaff
Hi there - I have a copy of Eleanor Elder's book on the Arts League of Service, and this photo is in the book. Judith Wogan is indeed in the picture - the photo caption reads: "Transport in 1922 - The Lancia - Edward Elder, Eleanor Elder, Reginald Gosse, Agnes Lowson, Charles Thomas, Judith Wogan, Cyril Nash, Hermione Baddeley, Winifred Nicholson, Hugh MacKay." ~ Many thanks for the identification of people in this image. ~ Administrator.

I have been given an archive relating to Archie Harradine, actor, director, singer, artist and calligrapher. He was with the Arts Travelling Theatre back in the 1920s. I have a delightful photo of him and others outside their caravan. Later Archie worked at The Players' Theatre in London where I later worked. Many years after his death, I discovered he had lived with one of my distant relatives.- Many thanks for your comment. Administrator. Comment left on 20 March 2021 at 17:08 by Richard Winch

I am looking for a connection between the writer Winifred M Letts and the A.L.S. - I have seen one reference (only) to her involvement - Court Theatre, June-July 1923. I would be so grateful if anyone could enlighten me. Comment left on 01 December 2022 at 18:30 by Bairbre O'Hogan
This is for Richard Winch.
Are there any photos or documents in Archie's archive relating to his appearance in themusical WILD THYME (by Philip Guard & Donald Swann) in 1955?

Dear Leon Berger.
I’m not sure if there are any photos or documents relating to Wilde Thyme in the archive but I remember seeing a photo of Donald Swann amongst the papers. I’ll have a look through and see if I can find some information. Regards, Richard Winch
