Held, Anna 1 - still image [media]

All that is certain about Anna Held's life is that she was flamboyant and very successful. A comedian of international status, she playfully toyed with her public both on- and off-stage, employing outrageous stunts and gimmicks to garner publicity. This photo was taken on March 10, 1900.
