|Contextual Notes||Dainty Marie was the stage name of Marie Meeker, a wire walker. Meeker's uncle was Seattle pioneer Ezra Meeker. She was apparently a dynamic presence in her interviews with the Seattle press: In an article in the Seattle Star newspaper from October 19, 1915, Dainty Marie discussed her fervent Christian Scientist beliefs and according to the reporter, "preached" a sermon about the value of exercise and moral reform.|
Charles "Tiny" Burnett was known for his popular orchestra leadership in the Orpheum Circuit vaudeville theaters here from 1915-1933. Over the years, Burnett amassed a large collection of souvenir photographs from the performers with whom he worked. Many of the photographs are studio portraits signed with fond notes by the performers, who range from novelty acts and circus attractions to opera singers and silent film actors.
