Antique CDV by Newsboy, burlesque broadway performers

  • $6000 CAD

An antique CDV (carte de visite) of a group of 3 vaudeville or burlesque Broadway performers. Meant as promotional materials, this portrait photo has faded over time. It has been pasted to 'Newsboy, New York' card stock. Newsboy was a brand of plug tobacco and Newsboy photographs were given away as a premium by tobacconists and drug stores who sold the tobacco. The images were produced by the National Tobacco Works of New York. They were likely produced and issued in the early 1890’s. It looks like it has spent some time in a frame or mat as the edges are a slight discoloured and there is some framing tape to the back.
You will receive this original black and white portrait photo, not a download and not a reproduction.
Size: 6.5 x 4-1/4 inches
