The Great Karina

Carrie was my father's step sister, the daughter of a music hall act called 'Loch and Lomond', left with my grandparents as a baby and brought up as one of the family.

Carrie grew up and became the 'Great Karina', a dancer/contortionist/singer who toured the theaters in the UK in the 1930's, 40's and 50's.Below are a few of the many stage photographs in my possession.

If you have any information on Carrie and her stage appearances, programmes etc., please contact me.
