In July and August 1914, the Six Brown Brothers toured the British Isles in a show called All American Vaudeville, headlined by the Avon Comedy Four and featuring Josie Heather, (J. Francis) Dooley and (Corinne) Sales, Charles and Fannie Van, the Four Bards, Ethel Mae Barker, and The Stanleys. This chapter describes the show. The tour was successful, but the outbreak of the First World War cut it short and led the entertainers to return to the United States.
