Gaiety Girls were the chorus girls in Edwardian musical comedies, beginning in the 1890s at the Gaiety Theatre, London, in the shows produced by George Edwardes. The popularity of this genre of musical theatre depended, in part, on the beautiful dancing corps of "Gaiety Girls" appearing onstage in bathing attire and in the latest fashions. The 1890s Gaiety Girls were respectable, elegant young ladies, unlike the corseted actresses from London's earlier musical burlesques.[1] Later, even the stars of these musical comedies were referred to as Gaiety Girls.[
. Correct ??

Very nice Kennet. Great condition.

I'd say that's a nice pair, but the gaiety girls are probably used to hearing that.

Lovely tins Kennett. Does ‘Hand Made’ make it more desirable? Or does the condition of the other override that?

 Hi Kennett,

Two very nice tins in super condition. "Gaiety Girl" brand introduced in 1896. With regard to preference for "Hand Made" or "Machine Made" tins, the assumption is that "Hand Made" are earlier but for me, tin condition is preferable. I do think smoker's of the day were reluctant to change but made more economic sense for manufacturers when you consider that the best workers could produce 1000 hand made cigarettes in a 9 to 10 hour shift which was the normal working day at the time. But machines could make 2 to 6000 an hour. The "Silver Wreath" introduced again in 1896 by Churchmans who were reluctant to introduce machinery which contributed to their demise.
