This vintage real photo postcard features English musical comedy actress, Tessie Hackney (1885-1967). Tessie was the daughter of a butcher. In 1913, she married a Commander in the Royal Navy. She played important roles in “The New Aladdin” (1906), “The Girls of Gottenberg” (1907), “The Hon’ble Phi”l (1908), and “A Persian Princess” (1909). Her sister, Mary Hackney, was also a musical comedy performer. There are two photographs of Tessie Hackney in Britain’s National Portrait Gallery. In one of these images, Hackney appears in the same costume as the one she wears in this postcard. The portrait of Miss Hackney seen on this postcard was taken by famed female celebrity photographer, Rita Martin. This photo postcard is in good condition (see scans).

  1. Too bad the culture was so ignorant of wildlife. Poor ermines and ostriches, not to mention seals (baby ones especially) and other things with pelts and more brains than many human beings.

  2. What a beautiful coat, but how slow they would have had to walk so the hats did not slip off.
