Harry Lauder was born 130 years ago today.
Yesterday was Scottish singer Harry Lauder’s birthday.
One of his best-known songs was Keep right On To The End Of The Road.
I couldn’t find a clip of him singing it, but here’s Kenneth McKellar’s version:
On August 4:
1792 English poet Percy Bysshe Shelley was born.
1870 Scottish singer Harry Lauder was born.
1900 Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon (the Queen Mother) was born.
1965 The Cook Islands became self-governing.
