Walking in the zoo
Born in 1840, the Great Vance was originally named Alfred Peck Stevens.
He began his professional life as a solicitor's clerk, but left to become an actor.
He then discovered that he could earn a great deal more as a singer
and moved into music hall.
He was proud of his fair hair, and sported an eyeglass, gold-knobbed cane,
and jewellery, carried a gold toothpick and wore daringly tight trousers.
'Walking in the Zoo' is one of his best known songs, sung in 1870.
He coined the word 'zoo' to the consternation of the Fellows of the Royal Society
who tried to insist on the full title of the Royal Zoological Society's Gardens.
The Great Vance collapsed and died on stage at The Sun Music Hall
in Knightsbridge during a Boxing Day performance in 1889.
