In 1879 the actress performed in "Assommoir" at the Olympic Theatre. Rigl continued to play on Broadway and performed in "Uncle Tom's Cabin" at the Academy of Music in 1901. Emily Rigl was the sister of Betty Rigl, who was also a performer. Emily poses here at the Sarony studio, wearing an unusual dress and a modish hat.
