Artemus Ward in his entertainment at the Egyptian Hall. 1866

This print is a cutting from a newspaper. We are grateful to Leslie Myrick for telling us that the illustration is from Illustrated Times (London), 24 November 1866, page 13, a year when Artemus Ward was 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. To view all the items from the box, click on View Details and then the Key Phrase ‘Wooden box items’.
