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 bill includes 'The Bloomsbury Proper-ganders of Spiritualism' which was first produced on 5 November 1887, according to Jenness. The programme includes 'Special engagement of Mr. Charles Bertram'. Unlike programme ref. N1570, the Christmas holidays are not mentioned. It is therefore possible that this programme is later in the Christmas season 1888. The date might therefore be the first part of 1889.
