Cartoon, tailoring for actors, J L Toole
Cartoon, tailoring for actors -- Actors' pieces may be made up nowadays with every consideration to peculiarity of figure. (This cartoon is not intended to apply to anybody in particular.) The man on the left bears a close resemblance to the actor John Lawrence Toole (1830-1906). Probably a reference to the adaptation of French plays for the English theatre, in particular Stage Dora, or, Who Killed Cock Robin, adapted by F C Burnand from Sardou's play, Fedora, then in production at Toole's Theatre, London.
