a postcard photograph of Dorothy Doria (fl. early 20th Century), English musical comedy actress and singer, probably as she appeared in 1908 on a tour of the United Kingdom as Fifi Fricot in The Belle of New York.

By 1910 Dorothy Doria was with James Watts, Hugh Bayly, Harry Harmer, Leslie Maurice, Cecil Cook, Elsie English and Kathleen Severn in The Grotesques, a group of entertainers managed by Chappell & Co Ltd. They appeared at the Savoy Theatre in the autumn of that year for 60 performances before heading off on tour.
