I didn't know Esther well. She was a friend of friends. After she passed away, there was a box filled with snapshots she'd taken. Many were recognizable theatre celebs of long ago. Other photos were of her and others. Some photos had inscriptions on the reverse, which I've noted. Others had nothing. This box was destined for the trash bin. I saved it.

My guess is that this is "A Connecticut Yankee," the Rodgers & Hart show, which played Broadway in 1943-44, then toured. Vivienne Segal was the star - I think that might be Vivienne in the middle photo (in the middle) and in the dark gown in the bottom shot.
