Raymonde de Laroche: postcards and photos

I’ve found 2 photos of Raymonde de Laroche as Rigolboche in the drama “La Savelli” (Réjane theatre, 1906/1907).

Her name was often written as Delaroche, and her theatre carreer can be followed via “Figaro” issues (the best source about Belle Epoque Paris theatres). In 1903 she’s at Sarah Bernhard theatre, in 1904 she’s at Mathurins, next year at Little Palace (I don’t know what a kind of theatre it was), in 1906 she’s at Variétés and later at Théatre Réjane. A 1907 photo caption says she’s moved at Nouveautés:
