Adelaide Neilson (1850-1880)

Lillian Adelaide Neilson was an English actress, who was born in Spain to English parents. The family returned to England when she was very young. Neilson made her debut in 1865 at a theater in Margate, Kent, as Julia in "The Hunchback," and later that same year she performed as Juliet in "Romeo and Juliet," at the Royalty Theatre, London. She made her American debut in 1872, again as Juliet, at Booth's Theatre, New York, and returned to America several times through the 1870s. In this carte de visite, Miss Neilson appears as the character Rebecca.
