EVERLEIGH

This cabinet card captures the beauty of actress Kate Everleigh. The image is risque for the cabinet card era. Preliminary research reveals no personal details of the life of Miss Everleigh. However, there are many articles citing her theatrical appearances.  In fact, her portrait appears on the front page of  "The Illustrated Sporting and Dramatic News" in both 1885 and 1886 editions. She is also referenced in the book "A History of the New York Stage" (1903) for appearing in Reese and Farnie's burlesque production of  "Oxygen" and Lydia Thompson's Company's production of "Bluebird". Everleigh also appeared in the original London cast of  "Erminie" (1885). The magazine "The Theatre" (1885) cites her appearances in "Nemesis" and "Family Ties". Miss Everleigh also performed in the United States. She is mentioned as a performer in a burlesque show in San Francisco called "The Mother, The Maiden, and The Musicianer" (1880). This is a high quality photograph and not surprisingly, comes from a well respected studio in Boston, Massachusetts. The studio is Warren's Portraits and it was located at 465 Washington Street. Warren's Studios photographed many celebrities and notable people in Boston. To view other photographs by Warren, click on the category "Photographer: Warren".
