Amusing advertisement for Maskelyne and Cooke at the Egyptian Hall, 20th consecutive year

The 20th consecutive year is 1892-1893. We do not usually include on this website photocopies of items in the Davenport Collection. However, this advertisement from ‘The Era Almanack Advertiser’ is worth sharing because of the very last line. When the prices of the various seats are listed, the final entry is ‘Babies, Ten Guineas each’.
