    I think Marriott Edgers poems have a touch of reality to them. The Blackpool Circus animals animals could
    have been cagedbehind the Marque. The Blackpool Zoo was a fair distance inland from Blackpool. Wallace
    was a big attraction at tha Circus. The Ramsbottoms must have lived close to the Circus because Dad sent
    Albert back with a shilling to see what the Tigers ccould do!

    Marriott Edgar was a genius comedic monologue writer, whose work I greatly admire
    You can see and read more monologues written by me in tribute to him and in the same style

    I have just bought a cd of Stanley Holloway's unforgettable version of 'Albert and the lion' The sleeve notes say this was a real event which happened at London zoo because of the gruesome nature of the subject the location was changed to Blackpool. Holloway chose the audience at the Northern rugby league annual dinner and dance at Newcastle's Grand Hotel to give the performance which was received with great applause. This is a praphrase of the notes on Delta music cd 'The best of Stanley Holloway'. Can anyone confirm this as true and knows any more details of the original event? Margaret Smith

    Albert and The Lion

    My brother Don recently added his comments regarding the Marriott Edgar Poem Albert and The Lion. I share his enthusiasm for the classic piece, especially considering the connection with our Grandfather Molyneux of Ribchester, England. I am disappointed, however, that he did not do so using appropriate comments written in Cockney Rhyming Slang. I'll see Don 'baked! '

The Jubilee Sov'Reign

On Jubilee Day the Ramsbottoms
Invited relations to tea,
Including young Albert's grandmother-
An awkward old . . party, was she.

She'd seen Queen Victoria's accession
And `er wedding to Albert (the Good)
But she got quite upset when young Albert
Asked `er `ow she'd got on in the Flood.
