LO­CAT­ING THE­ATRI­CAL IM­AGES

Your Family History - - Snapshots -

This month’s Snap­shots sub­ject ties in with our cover fea­ture – the­atri­cal an­ces­tors. If you have a per­form­ing per­son in your fam­ily tree, you might be lucky enough to find a photo or two of them, ei­ther per­form­ing, or pos­ing for a pub­lic­ity im­age. You can find these im­ages in all sorts of places – from re­pro­duc­tions in news­pa­pers, The Na­tional Ar­chives (if a pho­tog­ra­pher wished to copy­right his im­ages, there may be a record within TNA’s COPY files, which in­clude sev­eral the­atri­cal im­ages), theatre ar­chives, or even on sec­ond-hand stalls or on on­line auc­tion sites, the lat­ter of which can be a trea­sure trove of act­ing-re­lated im­ages.
