Programmes & Handbills

The majority are for variety shows which include a magician. Most are from the UK covering the 1870s to the present day.

Maskelyne and Cooke, Egyptian Hall, London

The date March 1885 is written on the cover. This could be correct, because the programme contains 'The Fakirs of Benares' sketch which, according to Jenness, was first shown on 26 December 1884.
