Default George Grossmith

Thread for the discussion of George Grossmith as Diarist, a theory Caz has advanced in the past. (As well as the present....)

One can certainly argue that his book The Diary of a Nobody
contains elements of the Maybrick saga. The protagonist is a clerk obsessed with advancing his social status, with repeated misadventures. It's a good read, btw.

The Grossmith family had strong family ties to Liverpool in the nineteenth century.

George Grossmith, Arthur Sullivan and Michael Maybrick were well acquainted and had performed together. Sullivan and Maybrick were fellow masons.
