Deb St. Welma

Deb St. Welma
(photo: E. Dyche, Birmingham, circa 1917)

This real photograph postcard, probably dating from 1917, is by the photographer Ernest Dyche, 32 Coventry Road, near Bordesley Station, Birmingham.

Little is at present known of Deb St. Welma apart from the fact that she and Kitty Baxter were in a double act entitled ‘Sparking Titbits’ on a tour of various UK music halls during 1917. The present postcard of Miss St. Welma probably shows her as she appeared singing the chorus number, ‘There’s a Girl for Every Soldier’ which was recorded several times, notably in 1917 for the Zonophone label by Florrie Forde.
