Freda Jackson (1907-90): Famous for her role as the cruel landlady Mrs Voray

Album page 11.5 x 8 cm signed by Freda Jackson. This was obtained in 1948 according to the collectors records when she was at the Duchess Theatre.

This is from the collection of a lady who was an avid autograph collector specially active in the 1940/1950s. She wrote to famous people requesting a photograph and that they sign a special album page which she enclosed. I am happy to combine postage - please see my listings for a variety of autographs.
