In the early days of the 20th century. The prima donna was the ruler of the operatic stage. one has to only think of Melba. But in this clever cartoon from around 1910, we have a fight going on between two great soprano records. One of the records is the great Louisa Tetrazzini and the other the witty Mary Garden. While these two Titans fight it out on the library table all the other records flee for cover.
