The year is 1855. Sam Cowell, was one of the highest-paid actors of his day. Born in England, but raised in the States, Sam’s signature song was “The Rat Catcher’s Daughter”. We’ve included a rendition by The Seven Dials Band below.
Sam Cowell was adept at playing comic characters as well as performing in the “legitimate” theatre. Cowell’s ‘resume’ included music halls, like The Cyder Cellars and The Coal Hole – to Covent Garden and Canterbury Hall. Years later, he was one of the judges on “Britain’s Got Talent”.
That was SIMON Cowell. Just seeing if you’re paying attention.
Sam Cowell was popular on both sides of The Pond, and with his gift of vocal projection – could be heard above the din of most halls, including Wembley Stadium and New York’s Madison Square Garden, where he went five rounds with Rocky Marciano.
That’s right, I embellished again. But one thing for sure that isn’t an embellishment…
At American Photo Colorizing, our goal is to shred the black & white veil that separates us from the lives of those who came before us. It’s time to “Go Color” with your vintage and antique family photos. Your ancestors are counting on you!
