Trixie Friganza; born Delia O’Callaghan (November 29, 1870 – February 27, 1955), began her career as an operetta soubrette, working her way from the chorus to starring in musical comedies to having her own feature act on the vaudeville circuit, vintage silver print 'real photo' postcard published by Bamforth & Co.

She transitioned to film in the early 1920s mostly playing small characters that were quirky and comedic and retired from the stage in 1940 due to health concerns. She spent her last years teaching drama to young women in a convent school and when she died she left everything to the convent. She became a highly sought after comic actress after the success of 'The Chaperons' (played "Aramanthe Dedincourt") and is best known for her stage roles of Caroline Vokes (or Vokins?) in 'The Orchid,' Mrs. Radcliffe in 'The Sweetest Girl in Paris,' for multiple roles in 'The Passing Show of 1912,' and of course her unforgettable run as a vaudeville headliner. During the height of her career, she used her fame to promote social, civic, and political issues of importance, such as self-love and the Suffragist movement.

Verso bears original postcard graphics and original handwritten notations. In very good condition with embossed/raised image as well as hand color tinting and accents added to front.
