Sent by the dancer, La Habanerita, to a talent agency in Granada. “Danzas sugestivas” was a euphemism for the Romani-influenced flamenco popular in Madrid nightclubs in the 1910s. Autographed postcards of famous coupletistas are known, but direct marketing examples from the performer to potential employers and agencies are uncommon.
