1915 Extremely early double weight studio photograph of the actress Mary Miles Minter. At the time this photograph was taken, she was just 13 years old but already one of the top draws in Hollywood. Sexualized at a young age, she would have issues with men her whole life and be involved in a sensational murder in 1922 when the man she professed to love, William Desmond Taylor, was murdered. A powerful and thought provoking work of art, this photo presents well with a few small pinholes from editorial use and a crease on the lower right corner being the only flaws.
