Shirley Gordon received this silver cup on a black base as her Command Performance trophy. She learnt to perform as a singer and dancer at an early age. While working as a secretary for the Dunlop Company in Speke during the late 1940s she performed with the BBC orchestra on the radio. 'With a Song in My Heart' became her signature song. Further work over the years took her all over the UK in theatre and ‘Workers Playtime’ radio broadcasts.
