Bertha Wood, Vaudeville
Written on the back of the print, "Grandma Wood. Bertha Wood as "silly kid' character in Vaude." I did an Internet search on Bertha Wood, and found one reference to a Bertha Wood on http://www.ibdb.com/, the Broadway version of imdb. If it's the same Bertha Wood, she had one credit as a replacement performer in the play Abraham Lincoln which opened at the Court Theater on December 15, 1919 and closed in May of 1920. She played Susan a maid in Lincoln's home. I would assume that she had a fair career in Vaudeville, and that she didn't make the transition to silent movies.
