Alma Stanley

a cabinet photograph of Alma Stanley (1854-1931),
English dancer, actress and singer,
at the time of her appearance in the United States of America
with Leavitt's Grand English Opera Burlesque Co, 1881

(photo: Scholl, Philadelphia, United States of America, 1881)

'Alma Stanley, now playing in Patience at the Standard, is also English and tall. She is, indeed, very tall - almost the average man's height - and has a fine complexion, with brown hair and eyes, and remarkably long eyelashes. She comes here from England with a burlesque company, and is the daughter of an English army officer, who named her Alma in honor of the battle in the Crimea where he won promotion.'
(Daily Kennebec Journal, Kennebec, Maine, Tuesday, 10 January 1882, p. 1g)
