About the 1916 Cahill-Igoe Film Stars with Movie Theatre Schedule Cards
Each card measures approximate 3-1/2" X 5-1/2", give or take an eighth of an inch either way.
Printed on card stock.
Portrait in oval frame with ornate decoration on front. A paragraph of current biographical text under image of film star.
Cahill-Igoe Company, Chicago noted as publishers near bottom border on front.
Some also carry text naming The Caplon Printing Co., of Richmond, VA near bottom border on back.
Some cards contain both the Cahill-Igoe and Caplon names. Some show one or the other.
The reverse side of the cards were likely issued blank with local movie theatre schedules added later.
Those I have feature weekly schedules of the Albion Theatre located at Third Street between Broad & Grace and the Theato (5th Street) Theatre found at the corner of 5th and Broad Streets. I was unable to pin down which city these theatres were located in, though since all cards were acquired at once I'd assume the two theatres were located in the same city.
All cards shown on this page were issued during late 1916-early 1917.
