    A version of this photo appears in the September 18 New Britain Herald with the caption

    Olga Petrova. actress, is back In New York after a trip abroad. She brought with her a pet monkey, little dreaming that any photographers would want to take its picture
    This is why you can't trust the press: it's not a monkey, it's a ring tailed lemur. Beyond that, Olga Petrova was the stage name of British/American actress/writer Muriel Harding (1884-1977)
