Famed Italian tenor (1873–1921) whose unprecedented popularity, which extended well beyond the rarefied realm of opera, made him the first superstar of the recording era. Sepia matte-finish 5.75 x 7.5 Mishkin photo, signed and inscribed in ink, “To Mrs. Harold Ellis Tarnoll, Sincerely, Enrico Caruso, N.Y., 1911.” Possible slight, neat trimming, a few light creases (horizontal crease slightly touching head; another along left edge very slightly touching writing), subtle brush to date, and mounting remnants to reverse, otherwise fine condition. Handsome for display! R&R COA.
