Description

This is a black and white photo of the actor Harry Towb in conversation with two guests one of whom is identified as Brian Coomber at the back of the photo. We have no information on Coomber but recognise Towb as the popular actor from Northern Ireland who was familiar on screen as well as stage. He began his acting career travelling with theatrical groups on both sides of the border and following a move to London in the early 1950s his presence on the British stage was cemented, in particular with his work at the National Theatre. The film critic Eric Shorter wrote of him: “Towb was one of the gentlest, most imaginative and thoughtful actors of his generation… He was always on the stage if he could afford it – taking television and film work to balance out his income.” (The Guardian, 30.07.2009.)
