some, if not all, of the prints in this selection of news photos (from newspaper files) of Anna Pavlova may be familiar from the good number of pictures of Pavlova already published in books.
two of the prints (the one with roses for a headpiece and the one with the tiara) are noticeably retouched for clear reproduction in newspaper printing. one with the torn corner is in the least good condition. all, despite the sometimes crude retoucher's brush, reveal a camera savvy subject. the stamped information on the back is sometimes clear and sometimes not.
the full figure photo, with a Dobson Studios, Liverpool credit, is free of crude retouching and has handwritten information about Pavlova's appearances at NYC's Manhattan Opera House
