Mary was very keen on using the Select bar as much as possible. Variety shows were held there monthly throughout the 1920s, with a notable date being the celebrating of the birth of Princess Elizabeth of York in April 1926, for which Mary booked Mabel Grimshaw aka Rosa Hanbury to sing.
- Mary first appeared in Daran Little and Bill Hill's "Weatherfield Life", published in 1992. Other information is derived from Little's follow-up book, "Around the Coronation Street Houses".
- Incorrectly named 'Elsie' in the 1987 book Coronation St. by Jack Tinker.
