The Halifax Daily Star for 27 April 1931, carried this photograph and reported that:
"Here we have the ballet of the minstrel show to be presented at the Capitol Theatre tonight by the Commercial Club of Halifax under the direction of Miss Frances Foster. According to the press agent, these 'girls' will be a riot. They are garbed as senoritas, an old Spanish custom with Commercial Club minstrels. Left to right, they are: Ald. W.E. Donovan, F.G. Balcom, C.E. Dowden, H.M. Laurence, Murray Ryan, W.R. Moore, J.E. Hudson, R.O. Cutler, E.A. Young, W.E. Godding, H. Montgomery."
