Bertha Welby (in the play) One Woman's Life (Chromolithograph portrait)

Buffalo, NY: The Courier Lithograph Co., [1880s].

Chromolithograph portrait print of 19th century American stage actress Bertha Welby (1844-1917). Single-sided, measuring 11" x 14". Very Good, with two small dark spots, one of which at first looks like a beauty mark on Welby's face; bit of foxing visible on verso, age-toning. Appears to be uncommon.

Welby appeared in the play advertised here, One Woman's Life, in 1882 and 1883 according to newspaper ads at the time. Later in 1896 she would found The Rainy Day Club, a women's organization that advocated for sensible shorter skirts that would not get wet in inclement weather. Item #140945779
