early 30's fan photo

This fan photo, originating from the early 30's, was one of hundreds given out by movie studios to fans who would write in asking for pictures of their favorite stars. Around 5" X 7" in size these photographs would sometimes contain actual autographs of the particular star you wrote in about but most contained only facsimiles. This is the only El Brendel one that I have run across that has the original mailing envelope.

Interesting blog. Great photos. I, too, love vintage. So much so that I am living this year as a 1955 housewife.
