Antique CDV of Grace Sherwood by Newsboy
An antique CDV (carte de visite) of Grace Sherwood, a vaudeville theatre and burlesque performer. 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 is still attractive despite some fading. It has spent some time in a frame or mat, judging from the discoloration on the edges and framing tape to the back. They must have run out of the correct ones as it seems Grace has been pasted to a card meant for Annie Pixley.
