Four publicity postcards for the Scottish comedian W.F. Frame

Frame was a contemporary of Harry Lauder. Unlike Lauder, he never became popular in the south of Britain because audiences could not understand his accent. Lewis and Julia Davenport worked with him for two seasons in Scotland: a 13-week Lowland tour in 1907 and a 3-week Highland tour in 1908. Frame’s autobiography is ‘W.F. Frame Tells His Story’.
