22. Martin Harvey as "Sidney Carton" in "The Only Way."

Scope and Content

One cigarette card with illustration of Martin Harvey.

Text on the reverse of the card reads:

One of the most popular actor-managers, is one of a brilliant group who had the advantage of graduating from Sir Henry Irving's company, of which he was a member for fourteen years, accompanying his chief on various tours through the States.

Probably his best known part, among many that are fine, is that of Sidney Carlton, in "The Only Way," based on Charles Dickens' novel, "A Tale of Two Cities," the closing words being familiar to very many: "It is a far, far better thing that I do, than have ever done; it is a far, far better rest that I go to than I have ever known."
