On Discovering Nita In My Garage
This signed photograph of Nita Croft turned up during the garage clearance. It was something of a surprise to realise that the lovely Nita had been sitting in my garage for twenty-five years without me realising it. Born in 1902, Nita Pycroft shortened her name and took to the stage, upon which she enjoyed a lengthy career as a singer, actress and dancer. Her fortune peaked in the 1930s when she had a hit with the song “When It’s Sunset On The Nile” Nita died in 1987, aged 85: – a few years before taking up residence in our garage.
