What was Lewis like as a person? John Davenport paints a picture of his grandfather.
The bill for this Magic Circle show included Gus Davenport with his sister Wyn in a “Shady Act”. The act made use of George Sylvestre’s sunshade act, which the Davenport family had purchased, along with some other tricks.
The photographs are of Arthur Margery, Herbert Milton, HRH Princess Mary at Milton’s performance, Robert Harbin, John Mulholland, Arnold Crowther and Leslie Wilson. The artwork appears in the book next to page 37.
