Donna Darling Collection – Part 3
We know that Donna had a show advertised as “Donna Darling and Earle in a Song and Dance Romance” in 1924. The Standiford Studio in Louisville, Kentucky took this photo entitled, “Donna Darling and Earle.”
Donna and Earl played in Oakland California in June 1924, and at the Melba Theatre in Dallas, TX in July 1924. Seemingly like an easterly movement, I extrapolate they could have been in Louisville in August 1924. Of course, I could be entirely wrong. As a matter of fact, I would expect a photo like this to be taken towards the beginning of a tour rather than the end. In either event, the photograph is likely taken in 1924.
