This is a picture of Lotta Crabtree. She lived between 1847 and 1924. She was one of the most popular actresses of the 1800's. Her career spanned from about age six to the end of the 1800's. She lived the remainder of her life in seclusion. She was never married, and preferred focussed on her work instead of sorted affairs with men. She required payment in gold for her acting, and carried her gold with her. When the gold became too heavy, she would buy property. She amassed a sizable fortune over her career.
