La Creole

Paris: Studio Piaz, 1934. Four vintage oversize photographs from the 1934 revival of Jacques Offenbach's 1875 operetta showing actress Josephine Baker in costume as Dora. All photographs with the stamp of Studio Piaz at the lower corner of the recto, and one with the address stamp of J. Manuel Richard, Baker's personal secretary, on the verso.

The operatic debut of the longtime comedian, actor, and dancer. The production, which was staged at the Theatre Marigny in Paris, was the first time Jacques Offenbach's comic operetta had been staged since its 1875 debut.

Two photos 11.5 x 9.25 inches, and two photos 8 x 10 inches. Very Good plus overall, one photo with brief archival reinforcement at the corners on the verso.
