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 advertisement on page 4 includes financial figures for year ending 25 March 1889. According to Jenness, on 5 August 1889 the Hall reopened with Ganthony and Morritt, who are both on this bill. Later, from 21 October 1889, Holden was at the Hall for about a month. Since Holden is not on this bill, the programme date is probably between 5 August 1889 and 21 October 1889.
