Henry Irving

Active selection:
Henry Irving.  Here is the young Henry Brodribb, later to become Henry Irving, being given lessons in acting and elocution by William Hoskins, a leading member of Samuel Phelps' Shakespearean company.  So keen was he to learn that he had three lessons at Hoskins's house every week - before going off to work as a clerk.  Original artwork for illustration on p24 of Look and Learn issue no 205 (18 December 1965).
