All that can presently (March 2021) be gleaned about Vi James
from sheet music covers and by Internet searching is that she has been featured on just one work namely On Mother Kelly's Doorstep
(1925) words & music by George A. Stevens
, and published by J. Albert & Son
, Sydney, Australia. The front cover of the sheet music shows a tiny image of Vi James and states that the song was specially featured in the Pantomime "Dick Whittington" produced by Marshall Palmer.
Surfers are welcome to contribute any further information about this performer.
