This postcard shows a portrait of Phyllis Dare, an English actress and singer. She was well-known for her stage performances in Edwardian musical comedy. She also appeared in several movies such as Dr. Wake's Patient (1916), The Common Law (1923), Crime on the Hill (1933), and Debt of Honour (1936). There is handwriting on the back in black ink, a brief note addressed to someone living in Somerset, England. Publisher's information on back: "Tuck's Post Card; Raphael Tuck & Sons' Real Photograph G 916; Celebrities of the Stage; Art Publishers to Their Majesties the King & Queen." In 1866, Raphael Tuck & Sons was founded by Raphael Tuck and his wife, Ernestine, on Union Street (now Brushfield Street) in Bishopgate, London. They began selling pictures, frames, and greeting cards but soon ventured into selling postcards in 1899. Postcards had been gaining popularity at the time and were most popular during the late 1800s-early 1900s. The company received its first Royal Warrant of Appointment from Queen Victoria in 1893 which is signified by the notation, "Art Publishers to Her Majesty the Queen," and the like printed on Tuck's products. Other monarchs also granted Raphael Tuck & Sons this warrant later on. The business was then passed down to Raphael's sons, Adolph, Gustave, and Herman, and then to Adolph's own sons, Reginald and Desmond. Unfortunately, the company headquarters, Raphael House, and thousands of records and original source material were destroyed in 1940 during the Blitz. After World War II, Raphael Tuck & Sons managed to start over from scratch and many of its employees came back. The company enjoyed new success over the subsequent years. Raphael Tuck & Sons closed in 1959 upon the retirement of Desmond Tuck, and it was sold to the British Printing Corporation.

"British Made" printed on back. Postcard is unused. Postcard is clean and intact overall but a small, light stain in the upper-left corner of the image and a few small marks on back. A Very Good copy. This postcard shows the Shakespeare Memorial Theatre (now known as the Royal Shakespeare Theatre) in Stratford-upon-Avon in England. The Memorial Theatre was designed by Elisabeth Scott (1898-1972), a British architect. Through her work on this theater, Scott became the first woman to design a major building in Britain. The theater was built in 1932 and replaced the old Shakespeare Memorial Theatre which had been severely damaged in 1926. While Scott had several critics who disapproved of the building's modernist style, she had her supporters. Among them was the Architectural Review, which had published a 1932 article commending the theater's simple design and absence of "meaningless decoration." Scott later joined an architectural practice with John Breakwell and Alison (Sleigh) Shepherd to form Scott, Shepherd and Breakwell. In 2010, the Shakespeare Memorial Theatre underwent renovations in which the main auditorium was completed demolished and redesigned.

A Good copy. Advertising card for an upcoming theater production, The Confederate Spy!, that will show at Niederaur's Opera House on April 17, 1891 in Bakersfield, California. Cast is listed with the names of the characters they play. Brief advertisement at the bottom reads, "Ice-Cream Soda at the Kern Valley Pharmacy." Advertising cards are interchangeable with trade cards. Trade cards are antique business cards that first became popular during the late seventeenth century in Paris and Lyon, France and London, England. Trade cards were often given by business owners and proprietors to patrons and customers as a way to promote their businesses. Prior to the use of street addresses, trade cards had maps so clients could locate the associated business. Many of these cards also incorporated elaborate designs, illustrations, and other decorative features. Trade cards became popular in the United States during the nineteenth century in the period after the Civil War. The late nineteenth century also saw the advent of trade card collecting as a hobby. While they are no longer in use, trade cards influenced the formation of trading cards and were the predecessors of modern-day business cards.
