Eleanor Daniels is my idol, I love her. I didn't know she was Welsh. I thought she was from Glasgow. I didn't know she was very good at music however I did know she was an expert Harmonica player. Elle or as I say Nora! We love you!
Had her own studio in New York where she coached and trained actresses for the 'talkies'.
Eleanor lived to over 105 years of age. I have a copy of an interview conducted with her in the year or so before her death.
