    Herbert Campbell began his career as a 'minstrel', performing with his hands and face blackened, presenting an idealised view of life in America. He was famous for his 'Dame songs', where he impersonated women, wearing dresses, wigs and padding to create characters that were the original pantomime dames. He was a large man and often appeared in a double act with the diminutive Dan Leno bearing the brunt of the jokes. He went on to manage a number of Music Halls and in 1898 he built the Granville Theatre of Varieties in Fulham Broadway.
