Little information is available on this show, although based on the date of the lithograph it played sometime around the turn of the century and was turned into a silent film in 1909 or 1917. Durand was a notable composer, having written songs like "I Love to Love a Mason" (1910), "That Kentucky Rag" (1912), and "Coney Island Washboard Roundelay" (1926) before going on to pen hits for the Mills Brothers in the 1930s.
