Agnes Evans poses for this cabinet card (top) photographed by Newsboy of New York.  Agnes Evans was a theatre actress who performed in the Broadway production of the Pit (1904). The actress is wearing a very revealing risque dress.  Further research by myself or assistance from visitors to this site will hopefully further illuminate her life and career. Newsboy was a brand of plug tobacco and Newsboy photographs were given away as a premium by tobacconists and drug stores who sold the tobacco. The images were produced by the National Tobacco Works of New York. They were likely produced and issued in the early 1890’s. The bottom image features Miss Evans in another Newsboy cabinet card (number 8 in a series). She is wearing a risque costume that includes fingerless gloves.

  1. Two Agnes Evans exist (both actresses). This Agnes Evans headed or was lead actress for the Gaiety Burlesque Company and appeared to strong crowds at the Palace Theater in Boston the week of June 18, 1893 (New York Times). She is said to have been active in burlesque in the 1890s-1900s.

    The second Agnes Evans (her stage name) who is not on the above cabinet card was more a 1920s girl, but she lived into the 1980s.

  2. Saw this photo and wondered if anyone knew who Agnes Evans was married to and if she had any children.

  3. Just found, after much research, Agnes Evans was my Grandfather Howard Satterthwait Boulden’s second wife!
