Top: Portrait of Sydney Howard in a pensive pose.

Upper Middle: An older photo of Sydney with his trademark lugubrious expression, this glum face was a feature of the many characters he played on stage and on film.
It is possible this image was used in an advertising campaign for cigarettes which he took part in.

Lower Middle: Sydney Howard seen on holiday, in contrast to the small mill town of Yeadon where they had both grown up, he and his wife Dora (nee White) enjoyed frequent luxurious holidays abroad.
A favourite destination in winter was Juan-les-Pins on the French Riviera, they travelled further afield to Egypt for instance where Sydney was struck down by an ear complaint which meant a stay in hospital.
This was in 1935 when Sydney should have been in Yeadon to present George V Silver Jubilee mugs which he had bought for the schoolchildren, his daughter Wendy deputised for him.

Bottom: Sydney is enjoying a meal during a break in filming.
