- Music Hall singer
Hello, I am trying to trace my grandmother who was a Music Hall Artiste, a singer. I have suspected that she may have used a stage name, and have recently come across a signed photo of her, on stage in a flouncy dress and possibly basket of flowers. Her name is hard to read, but may be Dorrie Dainton or Dawton. It is the middle of her name that I cannot read. I would be delighted if someone has heard of such a singer. She may have worked in Blackpool and Manchester, possibly further afield, in the late 1890s and early 1900s or later.
