TitleBlack Photograph Album featuring outdoor performances
Datec. 1928
DescriptionThe first seven photographic prints are of a group of seven dancers called the Madge Atkinson Dancers rehearsing outdoors. The women are wearing one-shoulder knee length tunics. These outdoor rehearsals were for appearances in ballets to be performed during the Opera Festival in Manchester in 1929. The ballets include Venusberg which opens Tannhauser, (Wagner), and Spirits of the Dance from New World Symphony, (Dvorak). The group features Anita Heyworth. Images include: by a stream, holding hands in a line, four dancers with scarves, seven in a pose holding bunches of grapes, five in backward bend pose, three jumping, one close up of Heyworth holding a scarf. All these prints bear the Allied Newspapers Ltd., Manchester stamp and two are annotated on the verso. Some of these photographs have a loose duplicate copy alongside them. One of the photographs is dated October 1928. See NM/H/2/3/44 &45 for the programmes from the Opera Festival.

The next five photographs are of individual children in various poses and costumes.

The final photograph features two children dressed in short tunics holding a basket between them.
