Miss Pauline Chase as Saint Joan


There may well be more postcards around of actress Pauline Chase than any other early 20th century actress! Certainly they were everywhere when I began my theatrical collection at the age of twelve. A second-hand bookshop (sadly, no longer extant) on Richmond Hill in Surrey, was a regular haunt and this image of Miss Chase was bought there. The actress is playing Saint Joan in A Pageant of Great Women at the Scala Theatre 1909.

Take care and keep laughing!
