Visual display of the He Fell in Love with His Wife

He Fell in Love with His Wife

  • 1910
Cincinnati and New York: The Strobridge Lithographic Company
  • The large poster shows two scenes of family life, top and bottom. At the top several people watch an elderly man step off a garlanded porch into a garden. The bottom image shows a minister in the act of marrying a couple, with two men holding hats off to each side. In between the images is a caption that reads "E. P. Rowe's beautiful story," with "He Fell in Love with His Wife" in larger letters to the right. Under the title is "Made into a play by Edith Ellis."
  • Based on the novel by E. P. Rowe, Ellis's adaptation opened in 1910, probably at the Criterion Theatre in Brooklyn (which she and her husband, Frank A. Baker leased) and directed by Ellis herself. She later went on to become a prominent theosophist and wrote books transcribing the experiences of a dead eighteenth-century American farm boy.
