A small archive of cyanotype photgraphs capturing primarily a mother and daughter, members of a Vaudeville performance troop touring the Orpheum Circuit in the United States Pacific Northwest in 1909. Identified locations include Portland, Seattle, Spokane, San Francisco, and Oakland. A clear portrait captures a woman and young child standing beneath an Orpheum marquee in Spokane, which lists acts for a Sunday July 25, 1909 matinee performance, including: Joseph Hart's Bathing Girls, Mr. George Auger, Carson and Willard, Lew Bloom, Moffett and Clare, and Frank Rogers (the colored ventriloquist). Additional images capture the troop members travelling, with families, and at rest. Of note is a clear shot showing George Auger, who reportedly stodd nearly 8 feet tall, towering above other members of the troop.
