Era Cigarette Cards (Actresses)

All enlargeable

Posey S.:

"I noticed this cigarette card with Nellie Standish [below] and remembered that my dad had some of her.

"Here they are.  In neither is her waist remarkably small.  Around 24-inches I should think; but she is nicely corseted.  That's certain.

"Incidentally, is it known that she was descended from Myles Standish, the mercenary military protector of the Pilgrim Fathers.  He was elected
to the appointment in 1621. I mention it because my dad was born in Standish, Lancashire, England, also the ancestral origin of Myles Standish."
