GUEST,SteveG Music hall singers funny accent (41) RE: Music hall singers funny accent 28 Oct 11

Off the top of my head, this theatrical Cockney dialect/accent was very popular since at least the early 19th century so predating the Music Hall era. They were at first supposed to be characaturing the Coster Mongers or Barrow Boys of the East End markets.

Billy Weekes would be able to give chapter and verse on this.
