dudley 1 This vintage real photo postcard features child actress Miss Estelle Dudley. A search for information about Miss Dudley yielded little biographical data. She appears to be most famous for her role as Alice in the play, “Alice in Wonderland”. Britain’s National Portrait Gallery has 13 photographs of the young actress. All of the images were photographed in 1917 and are from the production of  “Alice in Wonderland”. The photograph of Miss Dudley seen on this postcard was taken by well known female celebrity photographer Rita Martin. She was considered one of the best British photographers of her time. She opened her studio in 1906. Martin’s sister, Lallie Charles was an esteemed society photographer.   (SOLD)
