Very youthful 7x9 image
Photograph inscribed and signed: "To Beni/Sincere Best Wishes/to a wonderful person/All My Love/Texas". B/w, 6¾x9. Chorus girl, vaudeville performer and silent movie actress Texas Guinan (1884-1933) spotted a real moneymaking opportunity with the advent of Prohibition in 1920. She was soon running a speakeasy called the 300 Club that served illegal liquor, and used hostesses and chorus girls to distract customers from how much their drinks were costing. She was arrested numerous times; in 1927, the 300 Club was padlocked by the police for six months. Texas began touring to make money as the Depression hit. In Vancouver in 1933, she suffered an attack of ulcerated colitis from which she died at the age of 49, on November 5, 1933, exactly one month before the repeal of prohibition. Adhesive residue at right and bottom edges. Surface creases seen head on. Adhesive residue on verso. Signature light and beaded.
