Keys to History
This is Miss Cartier, who plays the part of a lawyer in The Merchant of Venice. She's wearing her costume and the posing stands are clearly visible on the right and left. Even though there's a winter backdrop behind her, the background didn't matter at all, as the image would be cut out and pasted into the group.
