This is a postcard-sized trade card that was used by J. H. Haverly's Comic Opera Company to advertise a tour in England. Haverly had begun as a minstrel show entrepreneur and promoter but by the late 19th century had transformed the crude, rowdy, racist minstrel show into a musical extravaganza that became a forerunner of vaudeville, musical theater and even TV variety shows. This card advertises Haverly's show as an "Operatic Success" and calls the production, "Refined." This card demonstrates one of the steps in the ultimate transformation of minstrelsy. ; Postcard; Color Illustration; 32mo 4" - 5" tall; 1 pages
