Photograph of Charlie Chaplin and Harry Lauder and an archive of letters


Black and white photograph (238x189mm) of Charlie Chaplin and Harry Lauder signed by both of them. Light creasing and some rubbing. Chaplin and Lauder were the leading comic performers of their day. They only appeared together in one short 1918 film (which is probably when this photograph was taken). Signed photographs of the two together seem to be extremely rare and we have been unable to trace another one.
Sold with this photograph is another photograph of Lauder inscribed by him to "Margo" and a postcard with a printed sketch of Lauder. There are also two letters and a legal settlement between Lauder and a Mabel Jarman (from whom this photograph and accompanying documents came) in which she agreed to hand over a number of letters for £780.
