This is a portrait of Enrico Caruso, the sensational opera tenor of the early 1900's. It was on this day, January 13, in the year 1910 that opera was broadcast live on the radio for the first time. The performance was by Enrico Caruso, singing on the stage of the Metropolitan Opera House in New York City. I wonder if he really needed a cane, or if it was simply a fashion accessory?
