[Photographic cabinet card portrait of the actress Charlotte Saunders Cushman]

Boston: Warren's, under the superintendence of Mr. S.B. Heald, n.d. 2.5x4.25 inch card with mounted image of the actress, reverse printed with the studio's information, some scarring to reverse as if removed from an album, as well as a later pen inscription reading "America's Sarah Siddons / First inter national American actress Charlotte Cushman, 1816-1876."

Cushman's lesbian relationships were acknowledged to some degree even at the time; in particular, she and Matilda Hays were publicly known as a couple during their time in Europe. This photograph, seemingly taken not long before her untimely death at age 59, probably remained in production after her death.
