Yonkers, NY, USALive Auction
Description: Actress Elsie Leslie. 3 cabinet cards. She was a child star with a long acting career. There are two cabinet cards by Otto Sarony. He was Napoleon Sarony’s son, who produced photographs under his famous name, but the studio was actually run by others. They are both boldly endorsed in ink by “Elsie Leslie Milliken,” One shows her as Katherine in “The Taming of the Shrew.” In the other a swath of black covers her breasts (in the negative.) They must have been felt to be overly exposed. The third is a close portrait by Elmer Chickering, Boston.
