Antique CDV of Agnes Evans, Newsboy Victorian portrait photography
An antique CDV (carte de visite) of Agnes Evans, a vaudeville theatre or burlesque performer. Agnes Evans was a theatre actress who performed in the Broadway production of the Pit (1904). Shown here in her 'Hilaria' costume ca 1890. 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. This particular portrait photo would have number 8 in a series. It is still strong with some fading. It has spent some time in a frame, judging from the discoloration on the edges and framing tape to the back.
