(photo: unknown, USA, late 1890s)

This real photograph cigarette card of Lottie Medley was issued in England about 1900 in one of Ogden’s Guinea Gold series.

‘To Miss Lottie Medley has been assigned the important role of Jeanette Durling in The Runaways at the Casino. She succeeds Miss Mabel Carrier [who] by reason of the continued illness of Miss Helen Lord has been promoted to the task of playing Dorothy Hardtack. Miss Medley, who is not only a good singer, but a talented actress in comedy roles, also becomes the understudy of Miss Fay Templeton in the leading role of the performance.’
(The Trenton Times, Trenton, New Jersey, Tuesday, 28 July 1903, p.2a)
