Lily Brayton, Walter Hampden, and E. Lyall Swete in “Hamlet”
Oscar Asche’s 1905 production of Hamlet at the Adelphi Theatre, London, featured H. B. Irving as Hamlet. In this scene Polonius questions Ophelia about her relationship with Hamlet (Act I, scene iii). The exact moment in the play is described in the quoutation at the bottom of the card: “Polonius: This above all: to thine own self be true, / And it must follow, as the night the day, / Thou canst not then be false to any man.” The card (3238C) was published by the Rotary Photo Company; no photographer is credited.
