Maskelyne and Cooke, Egyptian Hall, London

Although 1875 is pencilled on the cover, the likely date is earlier. Psycho, first shown on 13 January 1875, is not included in the programme. However The Indescribable Phenomena Seance is in the programme. According to Jenness's book on the Egyptian Hall, this was 'a new feature tonight' on 28 October 1874.
