Dora Dawson "The Double-Voiced Singer"
Unusual playing card-sized and playing card-backed souvenir tradecard for Mid-19th Century Dora Dawson, a performer who dressed like an early 20th Century "Half-and-Half" 50 years before the act became an archetype. This "splitting" of the person into two halves down the center-- i.e. costuming of a man on one side of the body, and a woman on the other side seems to have begun with Dora Dawson.
