A chilly Mr Mills, 1905

Ovens & Murray Advertiser - - REGIONAL EXTRA -

WAN­GARATTA’S Her Majesty’s Theatre was the venue for a con­cert on the evening of July 26, 1905, by the cel­e­brated basso Watkin Mills. Mills had picked up a cold in Goul­burn ear­lier in the tour, and had been un­able to sing at Al­bury the night be­fore. He man­aged to per­form at his Wan­garatta con­cert, but the bulk of the singing was done by his as­so­ciates in the com­pany.

It was so cold in the theatre that the singers wore over­coats on the stage dur­ing breaks in song cy­cles.
