Mr Kennerley Rumford


I confess that Mr Kennerley Rumford (1870 - 1957) was unknown to me until I picked up this postcard some weeks ago and subsequently looked him up.   I had heard of his wife however, Dame Clara Butt (1872 - 1936), the concert singer.  (wiki link)
You can listen to Kennerley Rumford sing with Clara Butt here on youtube.

  1. I must admit I wouldn't have recognised the name but the likeness is good between the two postcards, yours and mine. Mine is very beaten up though, sadly.
