EDITH HELENA
Extremely rare 6x8 image of the vaudeville and opera star, signing with a handwritten note of "eternal gratitude for including my disk in your collection"
Photograph inscribed and signed: "1911/To Pedro A. Chavez/with my eternal gratitude/for including my disk/in your collection./I shall always/remember/gratefully/Edith Helena". B/w, 6x8. American singer Edith Helena (1876-1956) was equally popular on opera and vaudeville stages. Her best known opera part was the title role in Puccini's Madam Butterfly. She had a phenomenal 4-octave range, and could imitate a violin (which she did in recordings, and in her vaudeville acts). She was Theodore Roosevelt's favorite singer. Lightly creased. Light surface damage at lower right. Ink note (unknown hand) on verso (no show through). Otherwise, fine condition.
