Description

Rare old cabinet card photo of famous Broadway actor Edwin Forrest (born 1806 - died 1872). Forrest made his first appearance on stage in 1820. He found great success playing Othello in 1826 at the Bowery Theatre. He worked steadily and in later life became a steadfast lobbyist for smaller theaters which were being merged with larger companies. His work in this area earned him the nickname "Little Man Edwin". The modern day Eugene O'Neill Theatre was once named the Forrest Theatre after Edwin. Its Philadelphia counterpart is still known as the Forrest Theatre.

The photographer is listed as celebrity photographer Sarony at 37 Union Square in New York City.

The card measures 4 1/4 inches by 6 1/2 inches and has some chipping on the right edge. It is labelled on back with his name, birth, and death dates.

Great photo for the collector and history buff.
