“Watch out! Here I come!” 

Last September, Dame Shirley attended a catwalk show at Julien Macdonald’s fashion house.

It was his participation in London Fashion Week, as reported here.

DSB arrives in casual.

Including a black leather motorcyclist’s jacket.

Has Shirley been burning rubber in her Mercedes-Benz?

Or Ducatti? 🙂

Bournemouth Poster


Imagine being able to see Dame Shirley twice nightly for 6 weeks.

With prices from four shillings. That’s 20p or 39 cents.

And you got to see Nino the Wonder Dog as well!


Not Nino

At the Winter Gardens, a 2,000-seater theatre in Bournemouth, a town and resort on the south coast of England.

I went there many times in its prime. The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Queen, Genesis and a host of other legends performed there.

The town’s main venue now is the BIC.

DSB performed there too, most recently in the 1990s.


This is the beach where Shirley was photographed on the previous page “Beach Babe” on 5th February.

Thanks to Gary for the memorabilia.
