IDA LYTTON : ACTRESS : MUSICAL THEATER : DAUGHTER OF HENRY LYTTON : RPPC

This vintage real photo postcard features actress Ida Lytton. Sketch Magazine (1902) printed her photograph and the caption states that she was about to make her theatrical debut. She performed in musical theater and I was able to locate very little of her biographical information. She was the daughter of actor, Sir Henry Lytton (1865-1936). He was a very prominent English actor and singer. He was associated with Gilbert and Sullivan roles. The photo for this card was taken by the Rembrandt Studio. The postcard was published by the German firm, Rotophot.  This portrait postcard has been trimmed and due to that, should be rated as in overall fair condition. However, the image itself has excellent clarity and is in good condition (see scans).
