IMAGES NOT TO BE REPRODUCED IN ANY WAY!
Here are a few of my collection of early vaudeville, burlesque and theatre stars from the early 19th century on cabinet cards. The first is Johnny Ray, a vaudeville clown, and it is autographed on the front. It was taken by Morrison in Chicago. The second is Francis Wilson in "The Stroller", 1901, written on the back. It was taken by the Burr MacIntosh Studio in New York. The third is Maude White and is autographed on the front. This was taken by Falk in Madison Square, New York. The last is a publicity shot of Chauncey Olcott, 'The Irish Tenor' and silent film star with a group of children (his family?) and a very large dog. This was taken by Donovan in New York. They are all nice images with more sepia toning in the Olcott image than the other 3. They are all gelatin silver images with good contrast and sharpness, and are in excellent states of preservation.
