Postcard of Lillie Langtry, showing a B&W photograph by Lafayette of the actress, slightly turned away from the camera, wearing a long-sleeved white dress with embroidered decoration and headdress. The postcard possibly dates to the early 1900s and there is no division on the reverse. A message is written beneath the picture: 'Sorry cannot come today. Will come tomorrow if convenient (Friday), Lily', although there is no evidence to suggest that this 'Lily' was Lillie/Lily Langtry. The card is addressed to Mrs E Callett, 49 Cecil Avenue, Southbury Road, Enfield
