Portrait of the lovely Pauline Hall
An intimate portrait of Pauline Hall (1860 - 1919), born Pauline Fredrika Schmidgall in Ohio, a popular stage actress and singer who performed in opera and later in vaudeville. The photograph captures Hall's beautiful eyes and a pensive pose, as she wears a feathered hat and a lace collar. Printed on the back "Hall."

This is a stereoview image, which was created to view through an instrument in order to give a three dimensional effect. The card is 7 x 2 7/8 inches. Images are mounted on a flat orange card with rounded corners and a pink reverse.Light tanning to image, which remains sharp with a little fading, light spotting and scratches, light edge wear with a little bumping of corners.
