women-in-music:

Édith Piaf (19 December 1915 – 11 October 1963).
French singer and actress; one of the most popular French singers of the 1940s and ’50s, famous internationally for her husky, mournful voice and her songs of loneliness and despair.
At aged 14, she joined her father in his acrobatic street performances all over France, where she first sang in public, before going it alone as a street singer at the age of 16. In 1935 she was discovered in the Pigalle area of Paris by nightclub owner Louis Leplée, whose club Le Gerny off the Champs-Élysées was frequented by the upper and lower classes alike. Louis taught her stage presence and nicknamed her La Môme Piaf …The Waif Sparrow or Little Sparrow as she was only 4ft 8in tall.
After the war, she became known internationally, touring Europe, the United States, and South America. Among her songs are “La Vie en rose”, “Non, je ne regrette rien”, “Hymne à l’amour”, “Milord”, “La Foule”, “l’Accordéoniste”, and “Padam… Padam…” Édith’s signature song “La vie en rose” was voted a Grammy Hall of Fame Award in 1998. She sadly lost her battle with cancer at age 47.

James Edward Whitney collection of playing cards.
MS Am 2204 (13)
Houghton Library, Harvard University
Notes compiled by the collector: A German pack, but the suit-marks are of the French type, as the pack was intended for English and American players. On the Knave of Clubs is printed the maker’s name: “B. Dondorf. Frankfurt A/M.” The “Joker” bears a fool’s head and the title: “The Jolly Joker.” The figures on the Court Cards are represented in eighteenth century costume, and are drawn double busts in reverse. 
This pack is an example of a rather popular kind of fancy playing-card, such as are often given as “prizes” at card parties. The cards are of superior quality and the designs are of considerable artistic merit. Bought of R. Schwartz, Boston, 1901.
