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.’
