This cabinet card features actress, Lizzie Burton.  Research yielded little information about her and the search was hampered  because references to Elizabeth Taylor Burton kept surfacing. The few articles about Lizzie Burton that were found, seem to indicate that she was a minor comic opera actress. She appeared with the Boston Ideal Opera Company which existed between 1879 and 1904. A review of  “The Musketeer”, which appeared in tNew York Times (1885), offered praise for her performance in a minor role.  The “Musketeer”, Varney’s comic opera, had been performed at New York’s         Fifth Avenue Theatre. This cabinet card was published by Wells & Co., a New York City photographic studio.
