Backstage in the theatre

Vyborg City Theatre: Tuovi Hirvisuo Locker room 1937
11 Feb 2015 | From Auli of Finland

Now here's an interesting postcard of an old photograph from the early nineteenth century. The old picture, taken by Eino Partanen, shows a former Finnish actress preparing for a play backstage. Doesn't the picture somehow makes you wanna say 'Mirror, mirror on the wall, who's the fairest of them all?"

The postcard definitely gives an old vintage vibe as if transporting you to the past - a blast from the past. Auli got this postcard from a theatre museum in Helsinki. The postcard is part of the Teatterimuseon kokoelmat (Theatre Museum Collections).
