Gilbert & Sullivan's H.M.S. Pinafore

A member of the cast of Gilbert & Sullivan's "H.M.S. Pinafore". This photo was taken around 1879. The opera opened at the Opera Comique in London, England, on 25 May 1878 and ran for 571 performances, which was the second-longest run of any musical theatre piece up to that time. This photo was probably taken during that run.
