Herr Schalkenbach promotional item containing reviews of an 1873 performance at the Canterbury Hall

This is a promotional piece about Herr Schalkenbach, The Electric Musician, consisting of reviews of his performances at The Canterbury Hall, Westminster Bridge Road, London, May 1873. The date of the first review from ‘The Era’ is incorrect. It should be 4 May 1873. On page 1 of the item is a hand-written note that Schalkenbach was at the Egyptian Hall on 30 December 1876. George Jenness in his book on the Maskelynes at the Egyptian Hall also says that Schalkenbach was at the Hall over that Christmas.
