    Mary Pickford and Others - Vintage Signed Actor/Actress Photos, Set of 25. Includes a photo of Mary Pickford, "America's Sweetheart" and future Hollywood Academy founder and power figure, in a charming early pose, circa 1912 and signed "Sincerely - Mary Pickford" in black fountain ink. Also signed portraits of Silent stars Blanche Sweet and May Allison (who replaced her husband James Quirk after his 1932 death as editor of Photoplay magazine), as well as 24 signed portraits in various sizes of vaudeville/circus/wild west attractions from the early era of the 20th Century -- a weight lifter, an Indian chief, a lady dancer standing on her toes with eight birds perching on her, minstrels (including Joe Cook), and an aquatic act -- a panorama of all aspects of entertainment. The Pickford and Allison autographs are in Excellent condition, while the rest range from Fair to Very Good. A remarkable archive.
