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. This programme is probably from the Christmas season 1889 which started on 15 December according to Jenness. Morritt was still in the show at the time. So the likely date is between 15 December 1889 and some time in 1890.
