Enrico Caruso, Rosa Ponselle Ebay
Caruso in "I Pagliacci."
What appears to be a collection of ephemera given by Enrico Caruso to Rosa Ponselle has been listed on EBay.

There is no strong tie to Los Angeles, although both of them performed here. For example, Caruso appeared in a Met production of "Lucia di Lammermoor" in 1905 at Hazard's Pavilion and Ponselle was at the Hollywood Bowl in 1923.

I'm noting these items because there may be a few Caruso or Ponselle fans among the Daily Mirror readers who would enjoy knowing about them. Bidding starts at $429.99.
