    Default old photos or prints

    Can anyone tell me about these most likely Opera Singers and/or the photos/prints, found in my late grandfathers things. The paper wrapping says Melba, Caruso, Gluck, etc., and one has Kalgoorlie written in pencil on the back. My Grandfather lived in Kalgoorlie, Western Australia, from 1908 to 1927. The prints/photos are all 15" x 19" approx to the outside edge. There are 8 in total but none of my family even knew they existed. Even my father. Some have various studio names in the bottom right corner, such as Falk Studios, New York.WP_20200517_20_38_15_Pro.jpgWP_20200517_20_38_44_Pro.jpgWP_20200517_20_39_28_Pro.jpgWP_20200517_20_39_03_Pro.jpg

    Yep, that certainly looks like Kreisler. Is that a photo, a print or is it something else?
