    Mabel Normand Portrait and Shot of the Keystone Studios Cafeteria. A super-rare glimpse of very old Hollywood, this packet includes not only a striking 7" x 9" matte finish profile full-length portrait of Mabel (with the Abbe photographer stamp in the lower right corner), but also a glossy 8" x 10" candid shot showing the Keystone Studios commissary! Written on the verso, in pencil, is "Scene from inside of our cafeteria taken during the filming of Home Talent" - which dates this picture as 1921. The writing on the verso identifies Kathryn McGuire, Phyllis Haver, Charlie Murray (with "not here anymore" under his name), and Billy Bevan, all seen dining. The Normand portrait is in Excellent condition and the cafeteria picture is Very Fine with only minor surface creases, offering a magical, behind-the-scenes glimpse of the long-lamented Keystone Studios.
