This real photograph cigarette card from one of the Ogden's Guinea Gold Cigarettes series was published in England about 1900.

Margaret Robinson began to come to notice when in 1897 Charles Frohman selected her to understudy Blanche Walsh in William Gillett's play Secret Service: A Romance of the Southern Confederacy, which opened for its first United Kingdom performance at the Adelphi Theatre, London, on 15 May 1897. She afterwards appeared in a number of Broadway productions until about 1914.
