Signed photograph of the English contralto Marguerite D'Alvarez.

The photograph, by 'V & Co.', is roughly 8.5 x 14 cm, printed in blue. Apparently cut from a magazine, it is laid down on a leaf of pink paper taken from an autograph album. It is captioned with d'Alvarez's name, and shows her left profile. Across the bottom, in a sprawling hand, she has written 'Sincerely | D'Alvarez | Oct 20th'. On the reverse of the leaf on which the photograph is laid down are three autographs: the first reads 'With all my good wishes | ', the second 'Adela Verne | Oct. 20th. 1921', and the third 'Milan Yovanovitch Bratza | 20/10/21 | Stoke-on-Trent'.
