Fan scrapbook 3 (ca. 1909-1911) is a hand-bound, uniformly presented set of “Photographic Art Studies of Stage Favorites.” They are reproductions on glossy paper of photographic portraits, each with an ornate decorative line surround. The portraits range from bust to full-length, generally with elegant dress. There are some posed group stage scenes. Several of the subjects are identified as being in vaudeville. The photographers are White, Sarony, Otto Sarony Co., Frank C. Bangs, and Hall (all of New York); and Jens R. Matzene, Melvin H. Sykes, and Moffett Studio (all of Chicago). There are title pages from several issues of Smith’s Magazine, ranging from May 1909 to January 1911, which apparently was the source of all the pages included in this scrapbook. The issues indicated are: v.9 no.1 (Apr 1909), no.2 (May 1909) v.10 no.5 (Feb 1910) v.11 no.3 (Jun 1910)
v.12 no.1 (Oct 1910), no.4 (Jan 1911).
