This vintage real photo postcard features a pretty actress named Gertie May. She has beautiful flowing dark hair and is flashing a wonderful half smile. Miss May is nearly surrounded by flowers. Preliminary research uncovered “bubkes”. I would welcome any information about this performer. This postcard was produced by Rotary Photo as part of a series (no.1976 A). The card has a 1907 postmark from Manchester, England. This wonderful portrait of Miss May, was taken by Dover Street Studios. The studio was active between circa 1906 and circa 1912. The gallery specialized in taking theatrical portraits and was located in London, England. They were the successors to the Biograph Studios as well as Adart (a studio that took advertising photos).
