Large c. 1890's silver gelatin photograph of actress and model Lillian Russell from the height of her career and showing off her legendary figure. She is an underrated star in American history as the first openly sexual lady that was coveted by men and her sexuality used to sell products. A rare image that presents well with exceptional clarity, this has some wear but looks nice and carries an embossed dry stamp from the famous Hall's Studio of Times Square on the lower right corner.
