Show Review from the Birmingham Owl:

F. V. St Clair always sings songs with a patriotic tone, and his song 'John Bull's Railway Station' will be sung by Miss Renee Raeburne in the Alexandra pantomime. O'Brien and Buckley, senior wranglers 'are funnier than Charley's Aunt'. There will be two cake walk competitions this evening.
