Saidie Sellyna, an actress, singer and dancer in a publicity photo, circa 1911 by an Unidentified photographer. Photo: The Sullivan Family papers, Anacostia Community Museum Archives, Smithsonian Institution, gift of Savina Martin, Dominga Martin and Donna Akiba Sullivan Harper. UPDATE: Dominga Martin, a member of the Sullivan family who donated this photo to the Smithsonian, tells me that Saidie Sellyna was her cousin and a singer and actress in Russia in the 1920s!
