Babes and the Baron

one of the signs says "babes and the baron, now playing". this play opened on december 25th, 1905 and closed on january 27, 1906 at the lyric theatre. so this means this picture had been taken between those dates. interesting! another thing is that "the house of silence" that played in the savoy theatre only played 7 times then closed in the same month! it opened on jan. 23rd. i thought that was funny.
