PC Consignment. Adelina Patti (10 February 1843 - 27 September 1919) was an Italian-French 19th-century opera singer, earning huge fees at the height of her career in the music capitals of Europe and America. She first sang in public as a child in 1851, and gave her last performance before an audience in 1914. Along with her near contemporaries Jenny Lind and Thérèse Tietjens, Patti remains one of the most famous sopranos in history, owing to the purity and beauty of her lyrical voice and the unmatched quality of her bel canto technique. [Wikipedia] Elliott & Fry was a Victorian photography studio founded in 1863 by Joseph John Elliott (14 October 1835 - 30 March 1903) and Clarence Edmund Fry (1840 - 12 April 1897). For a century the firm's core business was taking and publishing photographs of the Victorian public and social, artistic, scientific and political luminaries. [Wikipedia]. FP New Rockville Stock.
