Gus Elen
Elen began his career busking, and found a position singing in a minstrel troupe.
His solo success began with the coster songs, sung in 1891 at the Middlesex Music Hall,
he performed cockney songs and sketches as a 'coster' comedian, dressed in the clothes
of a poor East End costermonger, coming himself from a similar background[2].

Elen was praised as an "authentic cockney from the poor streets" and was well known for
his involvement in personally organized charity events. For many years he and his wife
distributed free Christmas gifts to the poor in public.
