Photographer Frank Wendt was the successor to Charles Eisenmann, the famous Victorian photographer of sideshow, circus, and theatrical performers. He took over Eisenmann’s Bowery studio in 1893 before moving to Boonton, NJ five years later. I combed through dozens of Wendt portraits from this era but was not able to identify this performer. He took many such portraits of dancers holding their skirts outstretched like this. Refer to photos for size and condition: Excellent.
