MISS MARJORY MOORE – PRETTY PERFORMER WITHOUT A PAST

This real photo postcard features a pretty performer named Miss Marjory Moore. She looks quite young, possibly in her teenage years. My preliminary research into the background of Miss Moore produced “bupkis”. Perhaps a visitor to this blog can provide some biographical details about this performer. Miss Moore’s portrait was taken by Lewis R. Protheroe who operated a studio in Bristol, England. He was working as a photographer, at least between 1901 and 1917. His father, Thomas Protheroe found the studio between approximately 1876 and 1900. I was unable to locate any other photographs of Marjory Moore. This rare photo postcard was published by Rotary Photo.  (SOLD)
