Johnny Hines 1920s Era 8x10 Movie Star Fan Photo by Kraus
ABOUT THIS ITEM:
Large 8" X 9-15/16" vintage 1920's era fan photo of movie star Johnny Hines. Photo credited to Kraus at bottom right.
This is an approximately 8" x 10" fan photo from the 1920s. Printed on a heavy stock (like a card stock), these were the photos that movie fans of the day would typically receive when writing the studio or their favorite star.
Typically a fan would receive a 5x7 photo in response and often there would be an offer with this photo to purchase a larger sized photo such as this one for a fee ranging from 25 cents to a dollar.
Stamped or pre-printed facsimile signature (not a real autograph). Blank reverse side.
GRADING - CONDITION:
This otherwise strong photo has warping along the edges which can be seen in the scans. Also creasing at the top right corner; white specks over image as shown, not sure it it's flecks of soiling or tiny surface chips.
