I am always excited when I find a new venue for my grandmother’s exciting show business career of the 1910s and 1920s.

This week I found an article from the Press and Sun-Bulletin (Binghamton, NY) newspaper dated 17 November 1922 via

The other acts on the bill the last half of the week include Donna Darling and company, with Murray Walker, assisted by Jack Finney and Nellye Du Barry, in “Apple Blossoms,” a super song reuse and dazzling dance fantasy….

Because of those newly available online articles, I was able to add another date and venue to Donna’s vaudeville career.
