Laura Sawyer House Peters "Port of Doom" 1913 set of 6 cards Kate Kirby serial

Extremely Rare collector cards from c.1915 of the film "Port of Doom" with Laura Sawyer (as Kate Kirby, Detective), David Wall and House Peters. Each card measures 3"x3.5" with scenes from the film. "Kate Kirby" is considered the first female detective series, Sawyer made six films as Kirby, three with Edison Studios and three with Famous Players/Lasky. These are scenes from the 4th film in the series, all were made in 1913. The backs of the cards have a synopsis of the film in Spanish where the film was released as "Kirby, Rey de los Detectives" which is curious that she's referred to as King (Rey) rather than Queen, probably a marketing decision...
