Famous as a seaside entertainer and pantomime dame, Clarkson Rose made many records during the 1920s and 1930s. He wrote many of his songs, which were also recorded by others. His autobiography was called "Twinkle" and that word sums up his performances - full of life. Included are his famous tracks Back I went to the Ministry of Labour and I had to go and draw another Pound out.
