1880's Theater Poster of Actress Pauline Hall


Pauline Hall Theater Poster. Miss Pauline Hall, born in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1865 rose from an obscure role in the chorus to a prominent position on the stage of the American theater in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. She left school at 14 to go into the theater. Not satisfied with her successes in Ohio she headed for the New York stage where her beautiful voice and charming personality won her the acclaim she sought. She formed her own theater company, toured the major cities of Europe, and appeared in vaudeville and the Ziegfeld Follies. She died in 1920. Her image appeared on several series of tobacco cards in the 19th century featuring prominent actors and actresses of the day. We believe this theater poster had the name of the play and/or the venue attached by paste to the picture of Miss Hall. The poster is in rough condition with paper loss, creases, tears and water stains. Still it is a wonderful image and an interesting piece of early theater memorabilia. 28" x 42" (Stock number 00PaulineHall) $300.00
