Show Review from the Birmingham Owl:

Nelson's day is to be celebrated right royally at the Hippodrome this week'. George Leyton has been engaged to produce 'Nelson's name' - a tableau vivant representing the well-known picture "The Death of Nelson". George Leyton also sings a song which pleases the audience, the chorus of which is about a Prodigal Son in Piccadilly. Nelson's Victory Souvenirs, bearing H.M. initials (E.R. VII) made from copper bolts of Nelson's old flagship The Victory, are on sale at the Hippodrome this week with proceeds going to the Nelson's Centenary Fund.
