THE JERSEY LILLY SALOON
DEDICATED TO ONE OF THE MOST FAMOUS SONGTRESSES OF THE 19th CENTURY
Lillie Langtry (October 13, 1853 – February 12, 1929), born Emilie Charlotte Le Breton, was initially celebrated as a young woman
for her beauty and charm, and later established a reputation as an actress and producer. In May 1877, Lady Sebright invited her to
"an evening at home", attended by some of the famous artists of the day. Her looks—together with her ability to enchant those in
her company—attracted interest, comments, and invitations from artists and society hostesses.

By 1881, she had become an actress and starred in many plays, including "She Stoops to Conquer", "The Lady of Lyons", and "As
You Like It", eventually running her own stage production company. In later life she performed "dramatic sketches" in vaudeville.
She was also known for her relationships with noblemen, including the Prince of Wales, the Earl of Shrewsbury, and Prince Louis of
Battenberg. She was the subject of widespread public and media interest.

well-known philanderer. He became infatuated with Langtry, and she
soon became his mistress. She was presented to the Prince's mother,
Queen Victoria. Eventually, a cordial relationship developed between
Langtry and Princess Alexandra.

Strange Cultural Reference
In 1967, the Who released
"Pictures of Lily" as a single.
According to Pete Townshend, the
song was "merely a ditty about
masturbation and the importance
of it to a young man. it's all about a
boy who can't sleep at night, so his
dad gives him some dirty pictures
to look at. then he falls in love with
the girl in the pictures which is too
bad because she is dead". Lillie
Langtry, the music hall star, died
in 1929, the year referred to in the
song.
