I could not decipher the street name either, and tried various combinations on Google Earth, but got nothing. I guess there are hundreds of places called Hawthorn, in fact the suburb where I lived in Melbourne was called Hawthorn…..It would have been interesting to see where Miss Mooney lived, if it was still standing – I did this once when I found my Great Grandfather’s address on the 1901 Census, and found that his four story terrace in Northern Ireland had been subdivided into 8 flats.
I did find out a bit more about Marie, and this is what Wikipedia says about her:-
Marie Studholme (10 September 1872 (commonly misreported as 1875) – 10 March 1930), born Caroline Maria Lupton or Marion Lupton, was an English actress and singer known for her supporting and sometimes starring roles in Victorian and Edwardian musical comedy. Her attractive features made her one of the most popular postcard beauties of her day.
Studholme’s theatre career spanned from 1892 to 1915. She was one of producer George Edwardes‘ famous Gaiety Girls and originated several roles in musical comedies. Studholme toured widely in the British provinces and abroad in shows that had enjoyed successful London productions, and she became extremely popular in the British provinces. She ended her career in music hall comedy sketches. After her retirement from the stage, she fostered a boy and adopted a girl.
She warrants quite a long entry here , and there are masses of photos of her on Google Images – like this one:-
I shall have to have another look at all the old postcards at the market next week, there could be more treasures from this elegant time.
