Ever the Lady Killer

Here’s a picture of a very dapper looking George. I presume at the Gerrard Street Studios in the early ’50s. On the wall centre right is a picture of Norman Wisdom. The other two portraits I recognise but can’t put a name to them.

George Harrison Marks, Norman Wisdom,

George Harrison Marks (1926-1997)

    The picture of the aforementioned which has the caption saying you only recognised Norman Wisdom features Max Miller (left) (huge British musical hall star of his day) and Jimmy (Schnozzle) Durante (US entertainer) sort of centre.
    PS: Max Miller had what he called his Blue Book which contained his off-colour jokes. Hence the expression blue jokes
