Elsie Carlisle Image Gallery

This gallery includes photographs and other images of Elsie Carlisle.  Such pictures can often be hard to date precisely, as the more beautiful and iconic ones tended to be reused in different forms for many years, but it is often possible to establish a terminus ante quem for them based on reappearances of the photos on sheet music which is easily dated.
