Malcolm Scott in character as a "Gibson Girl". Photographic postcard, 191-.
Yours sincerely Malcolm Scott.
Part of James Gardiner Collection: photograph album labelled ‘Drag’.
The female impersonator Malcolm Scott (1872-1929), in drag wearing a clinging full-length black dress. Scott's impersonations of famous female figures from history and popular culture were a big draw at major music halls in the days before World War I. His 'homely' appearance also made him a good pantomime Dame, but he would also burlesqe some of the great beauties of the day. Here he is copying the pose and figure of Camille Clifford, voluptuous American-Belgian star of 'The Gibson girl', produced in London in 1903
