Artemus Ward in his entertainment at the Egyptian Hall. 1866
This print is a cutting from an unknown newspaper. An article on the back allows it to be dated as 1866, a year when Artemus Ward was definitely at the Egyptian Hall. A column on the back of the print is also illustrated here. It deals with Ward and, although unfortunately not the whole article, it makes it clear that he is a very good entertainer and light hearted lecturer. See Ref. no. N1989 for an example of his programme. This is one of the items contained in a wooden box of 19th century ephemera, mainly relating to the Egyptian Hall.
