Eclipse Gramophone Record of the Lion and Albert from 1932. The vocal was performed by Teddy Williams

"The Lion and Albert" a monologue made famous by Stanley Holloway was recorded for Woolworth's by Teddy Williams back in 1932.  His accent can best be described as Lancashire meets Yorkshire on a train to Essex, but the result is still quite fun.
