Abstract

Matilda Alice Powles (13 May 1864 – 16 September 1952), was an English music hall performer who adopted, at age 11, the stage name Vesta Tilley and who became one of the most famous male impersonators of her era. At the height of her popularity, during World War I, Powles ran military recruitment drives, performed in hospitals, and sold war bonds.
