Scope and Content

Scrap book containing newspaper cuttings, flyers, photographs, letters and programmes. Mainly relating to the years 1919-1920, it contains flyers for performances of the Messiah at Romford and Upminster in 1919, concerts by students of the Trinity College of music, including Cross, in 1920, and concerts at Kilburn and elsewhere, together with reviews from local newspapers. Towards the end are reviews of performances from the Old Vic and elsewhere in 1928. Inserts include a packet containing a photograph and cards from bouquets of flowers, and a programme from the prize-giving at St Paul's Girls' School 1915, in which Cross is listed as 'A. Cross', and won a prize for violin. Cross is listed as 'Annie Cross' for several events in 1919, including The Messiah at a concert on 23 April at Upminster in aid of St Dunstan's Hostel for soldiers and sailors blinded in the war.
