Albert Chevalier specialised in portraying the 'down trodden but dignified cockney' character. He had been a serious actor for 14 years and moved into the music halls late in his career, but he was an instant success. He used dramatic pauses and wide variations in pitch and volume to provide both drama and comedy. He wrote most of his own songs although the music was often composed by someone else. He tended to idealise the cockney lifestyle in his songs, romanticising the living and working conditions of characters such as costermongers, barrow sellers and cab drivers. He helped to make Music Hall acceptable with the middle classes and female upper classes.
