Rachel Sanger Rachel SangerRachel SangerA pair of cabinet portraits by Bradley and Rulofson, one a closer variant. Sanger is most known for her roles with the D’Oyly Carte company which performed the works of Gilbert and Sullivan.  From their website:

‘In 1878 she played the leading role in Diplunacy, a burlesque at the Strand, and in 1879 she was engaged at the Gaiety Theatre, Dublin, where she created the part of Annie in a play called Pair o’ Wings. She then made her way to America, appearing first at the Corinthian Academy of Music, Rochester, New York, as Princess Zeolide in W. S. Gilbert’s The Palace of Truth in September 1879. She later performed at Haverley’s Brooklyn Theatre in November 1879 as Minnie Symperson in Gilbert’s Engaged, before making her Manhattan debut in January 1880 at the Park Theatre in a Gilbert double-bill, as the Marchioness of Market Harborough in The Wedding March and Jenny Northcott in Sweethearts. In 1880 she appeared in San Francisco as Mabel in a Carte-sanctioned production of The Pirates of Penzance with Charles Locke’s Pacific Coast Company..”

These cabinet cards were thus made in 1880 when she was in San Francisco.
