Note
  • Nos. 1-401 are mounted on 9 1/4 in. x 11 in. boards, and arranged alphabetically; the remainder, mostly 2 1/2 in. x 4 in., are pasted in a scrapbook.
  • Covers flourishing period, especially in United States, of musical variety theater. Preponderance of items represent 'vaudeville' dancers, both individuals and teams, in costume. The large number of ballet dancers shown were also connected with the variety stage, e.g., Maria Bonfanti, Josephine de Rosa, Rita Sangalli, and others. Also significantly represented are scenes from "The black crook" and "The Devil's auction"; the Kiralfy and Morlacchi companies; 'exotic' dancers Carmencita, Loie Fuller and Caroline Otero; 'aesthetic' dancers Isadora Duncan and Thamara de Svirsky. Many major photographers of the period are represented, including Aimé Dupont, Falk, Mora, Reutlinger, Sarony, Schloss & White.
