Shaw Sisters (Mary and Rosina)


VOCAL DEBUTANTES.—We understand that two very accomplished debutantes in music and song, are preparing to make their first appearance in a short time. Their names are Mary and Rosina Shaw.—Some years ago, they sang here—but were then mere children. Mary Shaw is 14 years of age. Rosina is 10, and both are just bursting beautifully into bright womanhood. It is said their voices are highly cultivated—possess great power and flexibility, and that their debut will make a sensation in the musical world.
