Caption: " Commemorating the Centenary of the Birth of Edwin Booth, present Shakespeare's: 'Hamlet.' Staged by: Samuel Selden. The Forest Theatre. 'No man of mortal mold, save him whose blessed feet were nailed for our advantage to the bitter cross, ever trod this earth commanding such absorbing interest as this 'Hamlet' - this mere creation of a poet's brain. Upon no throne built by mortal hands has ever blazed so fierce a light as on that airy fabric reared at Elsinore - Furness." RF photo #21191.
