ABOUT THIS ITEM:
Large 6-1/2" X 8-1/2" vintage 1920's era fan photo of film star Rod La Rocque. Probably does date to original collector's 1924 note made on back.
This is an approximately 6.5" x 8.5" 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:
