    Is that a monkey sitting on the stair railing in the background?

    Looks like a cat in the larger photo. Funny-looking one, though.

    NYT of June 12, 1913 indicated that she had just arrived in New York to dance and the article appears to describe this outfit. No mention of the animal!!

    I don't know.. still resembles a monkey to me when I zoom in. Curled tail, dangling leg, and no signs of cat ears.
