Burr McIntosh artist print, 1902

Burr McIntosh artist print, 1902

I bought this image at a garage sale. It is an 8x10 print on mat board. I noticed the 1902 copyright date and that alone made me buy it. I did some research and this was shot when Burr had his studio across from the Waldorf Astoria in New York. I don't know who the woman is. I assume she is an actress from one of the theaters near the Waldorf. Most likely from an 8x10 glass plate. The back of the mat board has a series number. This print is number three of eight.

Theater promo picture

I wonder if this is a promotional print for a show back then. Would be cool who find out who this was and for what show.
