BACKGROUND
 
Matilda Alice Powles

She adopted the stage name Vesta Tilley
and became one of the best-known male impersonators of her era.
Her career lasted from 1869 until 1920.
Starting in provincial theatres with her father as manager,
she performed her first season in London in 1874.
She typically performed as a dandy or fop,
also playing other roles.
She found additional success as a principal boy in pantomime.
