Sophie, Irene, and Jennie Worrell

The Worrell Sisters were originally a singing and dancing act. Irene and Jennie were famous for their "inimitable double clog dance." The women performed in both the legitimate theater and burlesque. In 1858 the sisters made their debut in San Francisco at a "place of amusement." Months later they appeared at the Metropolitan Theatre in San Francisco. Arriving in New York in 1866, the sisters made their first appearance at Wood's Theatre, in the burlesque known as "Elves." The family managed the Worrell Sisters' New York Theatre from 1867 to 1869. The sisters pose here with their ringlets and pert hats for an unidentified photographer.
