EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases Card Number 98, Miss Woodsworth, from the iconic Actors and Actresses series (N145-2) issued by Duke Sons & Co. in the 1880s. The image is a testament to the rich cultural heritage of America's entertainment industry during the 19th century. Miss Woodsworth, an enigmatic woman of unknown origins, exudes grace and elegance as she poses for this albumen photograph. Her piercing gaze captures the essence of her talent as a thespian, leaving viewers intrigued by her story. The cigarette card was created to promote Cross Cut Cigarettes, but it has transcended its commercial purpose to become a collectible piece of art that represents an era when smoking was intertwined with popular culture. Displayed at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, this portrait offers us a glimpse into both the glamourous world of theater and society's evolving perception towards women in late 19th-century America. Miss Woodsworth stands as a symbol of female empowerment within an industry dominated by men. As we admire this remarkable photograph today, we are reminded not only of Miss Woodsworth's contribution to American theater but also how these vintage cigarette cards have become valuable artifacts that preserve our country's history and artistic legacy.
