"This was the earliest example of live transmission for a fee, a subscriber could listen to an opera or a recital that was being picked up by a telephone hookup. The young woman doing the listening is one of Cheret's most charming models."(Rennert, PAI-XXVII, 353)

An early example of live transmission, the theatrophone allowed a person to pay a small fee to hear an opera or recital over telephone wire.

This Theatrophone poster plate is from the Maitres de l'Affiche (Masters of the Poster) collection one of 256 color lithographic plates delivered to monthly subscribers in sets of four beginning in 1895 and continuing through 1900. The collection was reproduced from the original posters of ninety-seven artists in a smaller 15 3/4 x 11 3/8 inch (40 x 29 cm) format. The individual plates were issued as separate numbered sheet, with the printer's name, "Imprimerie Chaix," in the margin at the bottom left hand corner and blind stamp.
