Souvenir booklet consists of photographs from Revuedeville, burlesque musical comedy sketches, or numbers, 151-157. Copies were apparently sold at the theatre, as well as mailed to "regular patrons of ours now stationed in the four corners of the earth," who could then order copies of photographs from the Photographic Dept., Windmill Theatre in London by using the sketch title and photograph reference number. Mrs Laura Henderson became known for her innovative use of the static nude tableau, examples of which are pictured here. Staying open during the war years, the theatre earned the right to use the phrase ``We Never Closed`` and it didn`t - until 1964.
