Abstract

This archive article documents the career of lightning cartoonist Erskine Williams, known as 'Little Erskine', and follows on from my previous article that gave an historical overview of this stage act, which played a central role in the development of animation.

This archive article begins with Daphne Jones' own account of her father’s career. There are then a number of reproductions of the most interesting visual items within the collection. It ends with a number of excerpts from Erskine’s diaries, presenting his experiences as recorded at the time and providing a unique insight into the lightning cartoon act, music hall in general, and the arrival of moving images.
