Large 1890's silver gelatin photograph of actress and model Lillian Russell from the height of her career. She is an underrated figure in American history as the first openly sexual lady that was coveted by men and her sexuality used to sell products etc. A rare image that presents well with note to some chipping on the lower corners from news-room handling.
