Johnny Ford and Mayme Gehrue at Keith & Proctor’s Union Square, New York, week beginning, Monday, 5 November 1906
‘John Ford and Mayme Gehrue, lately returned from a season in London, were given a cordial welcome. Miss Gehrue opened the act with a new song called ”Percy,” while Mr. Ford walked up and down the aisles. They then sang as a duet a topical song called ”If the World Were Ruled by Girls” [written and composed by George Arthurs and C.W. Murphy], which has no end of verses. After this they settled down to real work and did some of the dancing for which both are famous, winning several recalls.’
(The New York Dramatic Mirror, New York, Saturday, 17 November 1906, p. 18b)
