Biography

Andrea King (February 1, 1919 – April 22, 2003) was an American stage, film, and television actress, sometimes billed as Georgette McKee.

Mirror trick "Photo-multigraphs" were one of the most popular boardwalk novelties in the early 20th century. By the 1920s the photo-multigraph was a common novelty attraction at seaside, arcade, and boardwalk photo studios throughout America and Europe. Press photos as a theme are rare. The photo of Andrea King is very rare.
